Release of Lien in Kentucky by Execution of Bond

Executing a bond is one way to remove mechanic's liens levied on a property. A bond is an amount that can be posted with a surety or other agency that guarantees payment to a contractor or other lien claimant. In return for this assurance, the claimants release the liens.

In Kentucky, the owner or claimant of a property covered by a lien, (or any contractor or other person contracting with the owner or claimant for the furnishing of improvements or services), may, at any time before a judgment is rendered to enforce the lien, execute with the county clerk in the county where the lien was filed, a bond for double the amount of the lien claimed. K.R.S. 376.100. The bond and release must be approved by the clerk and are conditioned upon the obligors satisfying any judgment that may be rendered in favor of the person asserting the lien. Id. So, if the lien is filed for $5,000, a bond of $10,000 must be executed to discharge the lien.

The release document identifies the parties, recording details of the filed lien, and the effective date of the release. The bond shall be preserved by the clerk, and upon its execution the lien upon the property shall be discharged. Id. The person asserting the lien may make the obligors in the bond parties to any action to enforce the claim, and any judgment recovered may be against all or any of the obligors on the bond. Id.

I find your forms hard to use, inasmuch as the forms cannot be converted to a Word Document. Editing and deleting of extra lines is not possible, making for a deed with large blank spaces.
Document that results is not usable for me.

Sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations. We have canceled your order and payment. We do hope you find something more suitable to your needs elsewhere. Have a wonderful day.

It was nice to find a form to use for leaving my house without having my kids deal with Probate Court. The price was a lot cheaper than paying for a Lawyer to set up a transfer of ownership.
