It will depend on the type of lien. There are mechanical, construction, code enforcement, IRS and tax certificates just to name a few. Not all will appear in the public records but you should be aware of all of them if your mailing address has been correct on the property appraiser website since you purchased the home. http://www.ocpafl.org. It is always recommended that you contact the building department and the code enforcement departments in your county to confirm the existence of any liens. If you are buying a property without the benefit of title insurance, this is especially true. Generally, the title insurance companies will research all potential liens as part of their due diligence.

The best way is to go to the county court house and ask. Sometimes they get backed up, and it could be weeks before it reflects on the ORANGE COUNTY TAX ASSESSORS website.

A lien is typically a public record attached to a property making it known that you owe a creditor some money. Liens on property are typically a common way for creditors to collect what they are owed. For example a lien can be applied to your property by your loan or mortgage company until such time as the debt is cleared, this is usually a voluntary lien placed on the property by the homeowner.

By pledging your property as collateral, further liens can be applied to your property against loans for home improvement and renovation.
