Does a Debt Management Program Place a Lien on My Property? – Jan

“Dear Steve,

My ex and I are selling our home. I am currently in a Debt Management Program. Will my Debt Management be paid off before I get my share of the profit on the home. Is this considered a lien?

The Answer

Dear Jan,

A debt management program is a voluntary credit counseling program and does not create a lien against any property. There is nothing I can think of that will inform your creditors of your windfall. You should be able to sell your home without any concern of being in a debt management program.

Please update me on your progress by posting updates here in the comments section of your question. I’m very interested in how this works out for you.

Big Hug!
