What is the Kentucky Mechanics Lien

Claiming a Mechanic's Lien in Kentucky

Mechanic's Liens are used to place a block on a property owner's title when a contractor, materials supplier, or other laborer such as a subcontractor has not been paid for labor, materials, or equipment provided. In Kentucky, a lien is claimed by filing a Statement of Claim document with a county recorder.

To claim a lien in Kentucky, the claimant must file a statement of the account due to him within six (6) months after he ceases to labor or furnish materials. K.R.S. 376.080(1). The statement must be filed in the office of the county clerk of the county in which the building or improvement is situated. Id. The statement must include the amount due along with a description of all just credits and set-offs known to him, together with a description of the property intended to be covered by the lien sufficiently accurate to identify it, the name of the owner, if known, and whether the materials were furnished or the labor performed by contract with the owner or with a contractor or subcontractor. Id.

The lien statement also requires the name and address of the claimant; if the claimant is a corporation, the statement must include the name and address of the corporation's process agent, or some other address at which service of process under the Rules of Civil Procedure may be accomplished. Id. If no name and address is included in the statement, service of process in an action involving the real property may be accomplished by serving the person who signs the lien statement. Id. This statement also must be subscribed and sworn to by the person claiming the lien or by someone in his behalf. Id.

After completing the statement, it must be served on the owner. The claimant shall send by regular mail a copy of the statement to the property owner at his last known address within seven (7) days of filing the statement with the county clerk. Id. Service is important because the lien will be dissolved if a copy of the statement is not sent to the property owner as provided by Kentucky law. Id.

This service is fantastic! Took a few tries to scan the document correctly, but their patience and quick turn around made this a far better experience than going to the County myself.

This service is amazing! We have tried several other online recording services which all disappointed. Deeds.com got all three of our documents recorded same day as invoice payment. Thank you for the quick turn around! We will be using this service often.

After a little glitch due to heavy volume at the County Recorder, my document was recorded. County Recorder was closed to public access at the office (due to the coronavirus issues) so all documents were either mailed to them or sent in electronically.
Deeds.com was very efficient at their end with very quick responses to my questions and concerns. I would definitely use their services again.

The template isn't that easy to work with, with you have to type out large amounts of text. Also copy and paste doesn't seem to work. Furthermore, the code listed on the guide is out of date. However, the DQC is decent in that it has all the required fields you need.

The Personal Representatives Deed is definitely a helpful document for my files. I find it need just a little tweaking by deeds.com ,
There should be more space for the legal description. I did see in the FAQ's you recommend putting it in the Exhibit and this is what I did. Also I couldn't get the year to be accepted and had to write it in. These are just some minor suggestions, on the whole I was grateful to find this document. Thank you.

Found the service useful and straightforward. The only recommendation would be to send an e-mail notification to the request or when their package is ready for download. Mine, apparently, was ready within and hour or so after placing the request but did not go back onto the site until a day later to find it was ready.
