Property Liens


Alameda County Department of Child Support Services will record support orders and judgments with the County Recorder's Office to create a lien against any real property in any California county in which a debtor has or acquires an interest. Any action by the debtor to purchase, sell, or refinance is prevented unless the lien is satisfied in full, or other arrangements are made with the Alameda County Department of Child Support Services.


A judgment lien on personal property is a lien on all interests in that property that is subject to enforcement of a money judgment, such as accounts receivable, equipment, inventory, chattel paper, farm products, and negotiable documents of title. The lien continues on the proceeds received upon the sale, collection or other disposition of the property subject to the lien.
