RE: Leins

I didn't catch the original post on this one.

How did you put a lein on this guy?  Do the powers that be actually ask you
to prove there's a debt owed before allowing the lein?

Could you provide some more info?

PS. I don't want this info so I can put a lein on someone.  As a new
homeowner, it makes me nervous if doing this is too easy.
