Lien

A legal 

Claim

 against an 

Asset

 which is used to secure a 

Loan

 and which must be 

Paid

 when the 

Property

 is sold. Liens can be structured in many different ways. In some cases, the 

Creditor

 will have legal 

Claim

 against an asset, but not actually hold it in possession, while in other cases the 

Creditor

 will actually hold on to the 

Asset

 until the 

Debt

 is 

Paid

 off. The former is a more common arrangement when the 

Asset

 is productive, since the 

Creditor

 would prefer that the 

Asset

 be used to produce a stream of income to pay off 

Debt

 rather than just held in 

Possession

 and not used. A 

Claim

 can hold against an 

Asset

 until all the obligations to the 

Creditor

 are cleared (a general lien), or just until the obligations against that particular assets are cleared (a particular lien).
