contractual lien

Definition

A lien that can be placed on a property as set forth in the terms of a contract if the party purchasing the property defaults on agreed debt payments. This is in contrast to a lien or claim that can be placed on a property under common law regardless of whether both parties agreed to such a stipulation in a contract.
