What happens when the escrow company or title company discovers a judgment lien or abstract recorded against an obligor who is buying, selling or refinancing a piece of real property?
The escrow or title company will request a "demand" from the creditor (the agency or person who has caused the lien to be recorded). A "demand" is a statement of how much is owed on the judgment. In the case of an on-going child support order, if the debtor is behind in his payments the demand will be for the amount of the support arrearage.
