If the lien is avoided oursuant to tbe bankruptcy code, it remains avoided unless you take some type of affirmative action to reinstate the lien.  If the lienholder attempts to reinstate or proceed as the lien were never avoided, it would be a violation of the discharge granted by the code and possibly sanctionable
