Our monthly review where we recognize amazing customer service and diligence from the greatest in recording, statute, and lien best practices...along with the lackluster. Take a look at who hits bullseye, and who is out of bounds.
This month we look at states that require proof of delivery when filing a mechanics lien. Sending a mechanics lien to other parties, such as the property owner, is sometimes required at the same time or before filing the mechanics lien. A few states require proof that the lien was sent out to conacts in order to even properly file the lien. This month, we examine a state with an incredibly easy proof of delivery method, that makes the process quick and painless. We will also take a look at one state that requires a very arbitrary but time consuming extra step for proving delivery. Hint: it generally involves a mandatory trip to the post office.
