What is the Iowa Certificate of Satisfaction?

Acknowledging a Satisfied Lien Claim in Iowa

Lien claimants are required to file a certificate of satisfaction under Iowa law when an underlying lien has been paid off or otherwise fully satisfied and the owner has made written demand for its discharge. The certificate instructs the clerk of records to strike the lien from the record upon a sworn statement by the claimant that the lien should be discharged.

When a mechanic's lien is satisfied by payment of the claim, the claimant must acknowledge the liens satisfaction upon the mechanic's lien book, or otherwise in writing, and, if the claimant neglects to do so for thirty (30) days after demand in writing is personally served upon the claimant, the claimant shall forfeit and pay twenty-five dollars to the owner or contractor, and be liable to any person injured to the extent of the injury. I.C. 572.23(1).

If acknowledgment of satisfaction is not filed within thirty (30) of the demand in writing, the party serving the demand or causing the demand to be served may file for record with the clerk of the district court a copy of the demand with proofs of service attached and endorsed and, in case of service by publication, a personal affidavit that personal service could not be made within the State of Iowa. I.C. 572.23(2).

Upon completion of the requirements for filing the certificate of satisfaction, the record of the lien's discharge will operate as a constructive notice to all parties of the due forfeiture and cancellation of the lien. Id.

Review: Finally able to print out the forms after a few tries. Honestly, I think it could have been designed a little better. I am almost 80; however, very computer savvy, but finally managed to get what I needed.

Name: Vicki M.

Review: Deeds.com served my needs perfectly providing a form for a very reasonable price. Every other site was double or more. The form was easy to complete and I like that I can access it if I need to make changes. I had contacted a paralegal to prepare this form for me and she quoted $150. I saved time and money with Deeds.com.
