can revenue canada put a lien on my uk property now that i am living permanently in the uk and a uk citizen
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
If they got a court judgment in Canada, they could apply to enforce it in the UK. You would be notified of that and in theory they could apply for a charge on your house.
But they would need a Canadian judgment, UK court approval and to know where you live in the UK.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

How difficult would it be for them to convince a uk court to agree to this ?

Will i be notified in time to hire a lawyer to act on my behalf ?

they do know my address as I have willingly given it to them.

I am currently appealing the assessment

The proceedings can be complex and time consuming. Yes you would be given a chance to defend it in the UK, but don't need to do that yet.
Does that help?
