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.

Deeds.com served my needs perfectly providing a form for a very reasonable price. Every other site was double or more. The form was easy to complete and I like that I can access it if I need to make changes. I had contacted a paralegal to prepare this form for me and she quoted $150. I saved time and money with Deeds.com.

I like that DEEDS.com has a variety of forms tht I may need. However, I was disappointed that I am not able to save the PDF forms after I fill in the spaces. If I need to edit anything, I have to go back to the blank form and redo the whole thing. Perhap I am doing something wrong.
