Mechanic's Liens place a block or burden on a property owner's title when a claimant (such as a contractor, materials supplier, or other laborer such as a subcontractor) has not been paid for labor, materials, or equipment provided. In Maine, mechanic's liens are governed under Chapter 10 of the Maine legislative code.

Certain steps must be performed to claim a valid lien. A mechanic's lien must be filed within ninety (90) days after ceasing to perform labor, furnish materials or perform services. 10 M.R.S. section 3253(A). To claim a lien in Maine, the claimant must file a true statement of the amount due the claimant, with all just credits given, together with a description of the property intended to be covered by the lien sufficiently accurate to identify it and the names of the owners, the office of the register of deeds in the county or registry district in which the building, wharf or pier is situated. Id.

The statement must be subscribed and sworn to by the person claiming the lien, or by someone in the claimant's behalf, and recorded in a book kept for that purpose by the register of deeds for the county or registry district, who is entitled to the same fees as for recording mortgages. Id.

After proper recording, serve a certified copy of the lien on the owner owners by US mail. 10 M.R.S. section 3253(B). A post office certificate of mailing the notice to the owner is conclusive proof of receipt by the owner. Id.

They respond fast, the process is simple, and it's obviously convenient. I'm not sure what else there is to say, other than it's I would say a reasonable fee to pay them to do it.
