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.

This article is provided for information purposes only and should not be relied on as a substitute for the advice from a legal professional. If you have questions about discharging a lien, or any other issues related to liens in Kentucky, please speak with a licensed attorney.

When I brought this deed to the county assessor, they were so impressed that I had done it correctly on my first try, and said they wished everyone would do such a good job on their paperwork.

I recieved my document in a reasonable amount of time. I thought being a member i would be able to look up more than 1 document but it keeps asking me for more money. I requested help, asking if I need to pay for each document but have not yet been answered. I appreciate the fact I got 1 document I needed quickly.

After purchasing the Quit Claim Deed, I felt I had purchased something I could have gotten free somewhere else. But after reviewing all the other information Deed.com provided, I realized you saved me a lot of time that would have been wasted on research.
Money well spent.

So far excellent service - I made a boo boo on the deed - no problem they made the change before they sent it off to be recorded. I will never drive to the Recorder's office again.

The download files should have the name of the form included. The present numeric soup is frustrating to navigate.
