Maine Release of Mechanic Lien

Mechanic's liens are governed under Title 10, Chapter 603 of the Maine Code. In Maine, liens that have been paid off or satisfied for any other reason should be properly discharged by filing a lien release in the country registry of deeds in the county where the lien was originally recorded. Maine does not require any specific statutory form for releasing a lien, although under common law principles of contract, the claimant is entitled to do so.

A release of lien form identifies the parties, the project's location, relevant dates and payments, and filing information about the recorded lien. Submit the signed, notarized release to the same county office where the underlying lien was filed.

Diane W. said: The forms were immediately available for download, which was nice. However, I was not impressed by the lack of several features: 1) there was no way to edit set text in the form, such as where it says you should consult an attorney. That is not necessary for recording the deed and I wanted to deleted it, but could not. 2) Also, under the "Notes" section, there is a limited area to write; I tried adding a fuller explanation of something, but the form would not accept or include it when I printed the final document. The form may do the job, but it's not very sophisticated or elegant.
