My mother lived with me in her later years up until her death. Recently, I received a Notice of a Federal Tax Lien against my mother at her residence, which happens to be my house. First, this is an obvious mistake that I am attempting to correct, but it may take time. Second, I confirmed that a search on my property reveals this lien, which will make my house more difficult to sell. Third, my mother never owned or had title in any of my property.

In other words, there is another person's Federal Tax Lien against my home. Forgetting for the moment that she was my mother, is there a way to get the lien removed against my home without fighting the lien itself?
