Negative Lien: Banks enjoy a general lien on all securities of the borrowers until the entire bank’s
claims are satisfied. There is, however, another kind of lien which is called Negative lien. In this
case banks take a declaration from the borrower that the assets mentioned therein will be free
from any sort of charge.

Equitable Lien: An Equitable Lien is an equitable right conferred by law to a charge upon the
movable or immovable property of another until certain claim is satisfied such as, a partner who
pays partnership debts on dissolution has an equitable lien on the property of the partnership.

Maritime Lien: A Maritime Lien is a right specially binding a ship her furniture, machinery, cargo
and freight for the payment of claim based upon the maritime law. For example, the person
who has suffered losses as a result of collision due to ship's negligence has the right of lien on
ship and her belongings.

Particular Lien : In case of a particular lien the creditor gets the right to retain possessions only of
goods or securities for which the dues have arisen and not for other dues .
Example: A laptop-repairer can withhold the delivery of laptop until his charges of repairing the
watch are paid to him.
