can a tax lien prevent a HELOC?


I forgot to pay some taxes and have a lien on my property. I wanted to get HELOC to pay off some debt, …

will the lien prevent my HELOC?

You will have to clear up the lien.

Forgot? Is that you Timothy Geithner?

Hehe, can it be settled at closing? Or it has to be before?

I never understand why people come to this board to ask a question like this. Call the bank and ask them! They are the one who will decide.
