Georgia Release of Claim of Lien

Cancelling a Georgia Mechanic's Lien After Payment

To dissolve previously filed mechanic's lien claims, claimants must file a Release of Claim of Lien. Construction liens must be canceled once payment has been received, the lien expires, or for any other reason. The lien release must be filed with the county recorder to cancel the previously filed lien instrument. The lien release is different than a lien waiver because it discharges an already filed lien, while a waiver surrenders the right to file one in the first place.

A Release form contains the following information: 1) lien claimant's name and address; 2) property owner's name and address; 3) address of the subject property; 4) date the lien was recorded; 5) the book number, page number, and instrument number as indexed by the county; and 6) reason for cancellation (lien has been paid, expired, or any other reason for discharge). The Release must be signed in front of a notary public who then signs as a notary and/or affixes his or her seal.
