What is a lien?

A lien is a security interest held by a creditor that enables the creditor to take an ownership interest in a debtor’s property in the event of unpaid debt. For example, a mechanic’s lien provides construction companies and other contractors who improved real or personal property with ownership rights in the improved property if labor costs are not paid.
