Mechanic's Lien Search
Definition: A Mechanic's Lien Search is a one page document that certifies to any unreleased Mechanic's liens filed of public record against a particular parcel of land. We search the records of the Clerk's Office for judgments indexed by legal description. The most common Mechanic's Liens are those filed by vendors (e.g. a carpenter, electrician or plumber) who have completed work but have not been paid.
When to Order: A Mechanic's Lien Search is often ordered when a new home is being constructed or a home renovation project has been undertaken. The search will help insure that the vendors who have completed work within the last 60 days have been paid.
Time to Prepare: Preparation of most Mechanic's Lien Searches requires less than 24 hours to complete.
Cost: The cost of preparing a Mechanic's Lien Search is $35.
