My mother wasn't never in a NH, its been 4 1/2 years since she has passed away and I just finding out that MERP has a lein on my mothers house which was willed to me her daughter. The way that I found out was that the title company had to submit a form to verify if there was a case open and there was. Case balance is $44K value my my mom's house is $31, I am still paying county/school taxes and up keep on the house. I pay for utilties too. How long does MERP keep a lein on a home? What can I do?
