Senate Passes Bill Protecting Against a Property Seller’s Prior Criminal Liens

The Senate has unanimoulsy passed House Bill 339, a bill that will provide protection to homeowners from sellers that have misled buyers (or their settlement attorneys) regarding a criminal judgment that is attached to real property. It prevents innocent owners from potentially becoming a second victim by having a prior owner’s lien attached for more than 7 years after the settlement.

It seems to me that if there is a misrepresenation, then no judgment can attach to the sold property formerly owned by the criminal seller at any time. But whatever.
