QUESTIONS

WHAT IS A LIEN?

A lien is a legal instrument registered against title to real property.  If you rent equipment for your home - such as a hot water heater or an air conditioner - the company that you rent from may have registered a lien against your property without your knowledge.  When registered against your property, this legal instrument can make it very difficult to sell your home.  

These "HVAC liens" are illegal, but due to legal loopholes and a lack of enforcement, these companies are able to register them anyway.  The lawyers at OntarioHVACscam.com can help homeowners get these illegal liens deleted.

HOW ARE THESE COMPANIES ABLE TO REGISTER LIENS?

Loopholes in Canadian property law allow these liens to be registered without the homeowners' permission.  Homeowners are often not aware that a lien has been registered against their property.

 

In many cases, homeowners do not find out about a lien on their property until years after it was registered.  To find out if you have any HVAC liens against your property, contact OntarioHVACscam.com today for a free title check.

HOW CAN I FIND OUT IF THERE IS A LIEN REGISTERED AGAINST MY PROPERTY?

Contact us today to request a free title check for your property.  We will identify whether there are any liens or other suspicious instruments on your property and, if so, discuss options to get them removed cost-effectively.

IF I DON'T WANT TO SELL MY HOUSE, DOES A LIEN MATTER?

A lien can stay attached to a property for years. The company can continuously re-file to make sure it will always stay attached to the property. This can cause problems should you pass away and your estate is left to pay off the lien against your property, leaving less equity to be distributed to your beneficiaries.

HOW MUCH DO YOUR SERVICES COST?

We provide a cost-effective, flat-fee retainer.  We do not bill our clients on a recurring basis: you will receive only one invoice.  Our retainer is designed to provide homeowners with effective legal representation which will cost less than it would cost to pay out the HVAC liens.  We are committed to saving homeowners money. 

DO YOU OFFER A "NO-WIN, NO-FEE" ARRANGEMENT?

Yes.  We will not charge homeowners a fee unless we succeed in getting a lien or other suspicious instrument removed from their property.

WHERE DO YOU CURRENTLY OFFER YOUR SERVICES?

At this time, we only offer our services within the Province of Ontario.
