Filing a Mechanic's Lien in Alabama

Obtaining a lien for construction work, including the furnishing of labor or materials, must be accomplished by filing a verified statement with the probate court in the Alabama county where the subject property is located.

Every person entitled to a lien must file, in the office of the judge of probate of the county in which the property upon which the lien is sought is situated, a statement in writing, verified by the oath of the person claiming the lien, or of some other person having knowledge of the facts, containing 1) the amount of the demand secured by the lien, after all just credits have been given, 2) a description of the property on which the lien is claimed in such a manner that same may be located or identified, a description by house number, name of street, and name of city or town being a sufficient description where the property is located in a city or town, and 3) the name of the owner or proprietor thereof; but no error in the amount of the demand or in the name of the owner or proprietor, shall affect the lien. Ala. Code Ann. 35-11-213. Unless such statement is so filed the lien shall be lost. Id.

To preserve lien rights under Ala. Code Ann. 35-11-215, claimants must file the verified statement according to the following time limits:
by every original contractor within six (6) months;
by every journeyman and day laborer within 30 days; and
by every other person entitled to such lien within four (4) months
after the last item of work has been performed or the last item of material has been furnished. Keep in mind that once the lien is in place, is still must be enforced through a lawsuit if the owner still refuses or is unwilling to make full payment.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

I asked for a letter of testamentary form and this is what I got. Not at all what I was hoping for. Just spent $20 for nothing. Very disappointed.

It was OK but unfortunately useless. The jurisdictions are now requesting that documents such as Notices of Commencement not only be recorded at their offices, but also certified. This last service is not provided by Deeds, or at least I could not find it in your website and did not receive a response when I asked if you did. Thus, we are going back to traditional means of recording/certifying

This makes it so easy and I'm so glad I found you.

I visited two other sites before I found this one. They were cumbersome to use to the point where I abandoned them and kept on looking. Then I found yours, and it was a breeze. Thank you so much!
