Statement of Lien in Colorado

Contractors and subcontractors have a unique remedy available to them when a property owner or some other party involved in the "chain" refuses to pay up. This special remedy is called a mechanic's lien, also sometimes known as a contractors, materialman, or construction lien. The lien works like a mortgage by giving a type of property interest to the lien holder. With a lien in place, it becomes more difficult for the owner to sell or refinance a property. Other contractors will also see there is already a lien before they begin any additional work. In Colorado, mechanic's liens are governed under 38-22-101 -- 38-22-133 of the Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S.). In Colorado, claimants must file a Statement of Lien document to claim a mechanic's lien.

The Statement of Lien must contain the following: (1) The name of the owner or reputed owner of such property, or in case such name is not known to him, a statement to that effect; (2) the name of the person claiming the lien; (3) the name of the person who furnished the laborers or materials or performed the labor for which the lien is claimed; (4) the name of the contractor when the lien is claimed by a subcontractor or by the assignee of a subcontractor, or, in case the name of such contractor is not known to a lien claimant, a statement to that effect; (5) a description of the property to be charged with the lien, sufficient to identify it; and (6) a statement of the amount due or owing such claimant. C.R.S. 38-22-109(1).

The Lien Statement must be signed and sworn to by the party, or by one of the parties who is claiming the lien, or by some other person on their behalf, to the best knowledge, information, and belief of the affiant; and the signature of any such affiant to any such verification shall be a sufficient signing of the statement. C.R.S. 38-22-109(2).

Before the Lien Statement can be filed, you must have fulfilled the preliminary notice requirement. In order to preserve any lien for work performed or laborers or materials furnished, there must be a notice of intent to file a lien statement served upon the owner or reputed owner of the property (or the owner's agent and the principal or prime contractor or his or her agent) at least ten (10) days before the time of filing the lien statement with the county clerk and recorder. C.R.S. 38-22-109(3). The notice of intent must be served by personal service or by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested, addressed to the last known address of such persons, and an affidavit of such service or mailing at least ten (10) days before filing of the lien statement. Id.

The timeline for filing the lien depends on who is the party claiming the lien. Mechanic's liens claimed for labor and work by the day or piece, (but without furnishing laborers or materials), must be filed for record after the last items of labor has been performed and at any time before the expiration of two months after the labor or work is completed. C.R.S. 38-22-109(4). All other lien claimants must file their claims at any time before the expiration of four months after the day on which the last labor is performed or the last act of furnishing laborers or materials. C.R.S. 38-22-109(5).

If there is an error in a filed lien statement, a new or amended statement may be filed within the periods provided for claiming a lien to correct or cure any mistake (or for the purpose of more fully complying with the provisions of the lien law). C.R.S. 38-22-109(6).

Once the lien is in place, remember it won't last forever. A mechanic's lien will not remain effective longer than one year from the filing of the lien, unless within thirty days after each annual anniversary of the filing of the lien statement, the lien claimant files an affidavit in the office of the county clerk and recorder of the county wherein the property is located, stating that the improvements on said property have not been completed. C.R.S. 38-22-109(8).

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.

Communication is hard. The reps need to be empowered and encouraged to call the customers when necessary. They encourage 300 dpi resolution and under 2 MB PDF file, which is not even possible with our scanner. They made a vague comment about a legal description looking abbreviated but did not explain. They refused to call me. They said the county said "Image is light please darken", but the image looked fine to me. Maybe not their fault, but they refused to help work with the county on that for me. I followed their suggestion though and re-scanned at 300 dpi, but they misunderstood me and did not re-submit it right away. Over 48 hours later, it's still not recorded yet. I hope it will be today.

This was the first time I had ever had to fill out a Warranty Deed, so if it was not for your example form on how to fill one out, I would be still be here completely lost. I had originally gone to another site for a Warranty Deed & they wanted double the amount of your price & their website had no examples forms. I am so happy with your site & service. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be able to download the forms as much as we need to because as many mistakes I made,I had to print quite a few to be able to get it done right.

I called the county clerk office yesterday that i wanted to get a deed e-filed and recorded. I was told they are not accepting documents in person because of the COVID 19 pandemic that I have to mail it. I found Deeds.com online and in less than 24hrs i have my document. Thank you!!!!! $15....Totally worth it.

The deed form is hard to fill in. There is no way to fill in the county in the "reviewed by" section. Also, there is no place for the Grantee's address on the form. I had to include it in the fill-in space for the legal description.
