Voidable Lien Law and Legal Definition

Voidable lien is a lien which is subject to disaffirmance by the lienee. It is a lien given by a bankrupt and which may be avoided at the instance of his/her trustee in bankruptcy. The property discharged from the voidable lien should pass to the trustee or debtor as a part of the estate of the bankrupt. [In re Burden, 83 F. Supp. 416, 428 (D. Neb. 1949)]
