Discharging a Lien in Kentucky
When a lien has been paid off in full or is no longer necessary for any other reason, best practices direct the claimant to file a document discharging the lien. Kentucky does not provide for a specific mechanism of discharging a lien, as a lien already expires twelve months after its filing without any enforcement action. This document, however, reduces the amount of time a lien is in effect.
File the Discharge of Lien document in the county where the property is located (this should be the same location where the statement of lien was originally filed). The Discharge of Lien contains then following information: 1) name of the payor and payee; 2) payment amount; 3) name of person who originally furnished labor or materials; 4) description of items furnished; 5) address of the property; 5) the owner's name, and 6) the book and page number where the lien was recorded. Once the Discharge of Lien is filed and recorded, the lien will be struck from the record.
