A little background: Most real estate in Greater Minnesota is "abstract property". In Hennepin and Ramsey much of the land is "Registered property", a/k/a "Torrens property". For this post I will ignore Torrens property. When a judgment is entered and docketed in District Court, the judgment becomes a lien on all abstract property in that county. The lien does not "attach" to property which is homestead property under state law; however, there is no way to determine if a piece of land is homestead or non-homestead. So, practically, a judgment is an apparent lien on any real estate you may…
Judge Michael Ridgway recently issued an opinion that summarizes how to "avoid" judgment liens in bankruptcy. The case is In re Mus, case number 17-42895.
