How to Contest a Recorded Claim of Lien in Georgia

In the State of Georgia, an action to enforce a recorded claim of lien must be commenced within 365 days of recording the lien claim. O.C.G.A. 44-14-361.1(a)(3). In addition, within 30 days after commencing such lien action, the party claiming the lien must file a notice of the action with the clerk of the superior court of the county where the subject lien was filed. Id.

Many states, including Georgia, provide the property owner with a method to protect his or her property by allowing the owner to file a notice shortening the time for filing an enforcement action. In Georgia, that procedure is called a "Notice of Contest of Lien." O.C.G.A. 44-14-368.

Under this process, an owner or an owner's agent or attorney, or the contractor or contractor's agent or attorney, may elect to shorten the time set in which to commence a lien action to enforce any claim of lien by recording in the superior court clerk's office a notice of contest, along with proof of delivery upon the lien claimant. O.C.G.A. 44-14-368(a). The notice should contain the lien claimant's name and address, the date the lien claim was filed, the recorded lien book and page number, the name of the county where the claim of lien was filed, and the property owner's name. Id.

The Notice must also be served on the claimant by sending a copy of the Notice of Contest of Lien within seven days of its filing by registered or certified mail or statutory overnight delivery to the lien claimant at the address noted on the face of the lien. O.C.G.A. 44-14-368(b). Service is deemed complete upon mailing. Id.

The lien will be extinguished by law 90 days after filing the notice of contest of lien if no notice of commencement of lien action is filed within that time period. O.C.G.A. 44-14-368(c). No additional release or voiding of such liens is required. Id.

Fantastic Experience! I have been through several different companies offering to do the same thing but only offering subscriptions. I have no negative reviews, took 1 business day from submission, professional and timely updates and extremely fair pricing considering the amount of time it saves you.

Happy to give you a 5 star rating. We have never been a position to get changes on and record our own deed. You made the process very easy. Submitted my forms on a Friday, made one correction that was requested of me, paid our fees and the received notification of deed being recorded the next Tuesday. Wonderful work on your part and super easy for me. Thanks!
