Maryland Mechanics Lien Release

Releasing a Mechanic's Lien in Maryland

In Maryland, when a mechanic's liens placed on a property has been paid off or satisfied for any reason, the lien should be properly discharged by filing a lien release in the county registry of deeds in the county where the lien was originally recorded. The owner is also entitled under state law to have the lien lifted upon satisfying the lien obligation. Maryland does not mandate a statutory form for releasing a lien, but a document identifying the lien and the subject property is sufficient to order its release.

At the time of settlement or payment in full between a contractor and an owner, the contractor shall give to the owner a signed release of lien from each material supplier and subcontractor who provided work or materials under the contract. Md. Real Prop. Code 9--114(a).

A valid lien release identifies the parties, the location of the project, relevant dates, details about the previously recorded lien, and all other information necessary for the specific situation. File the release with the recording office for the county where the property subject to the lien is located.

That made it convenient and "no pressure". The complimentary guide and completed example that came with the form was also very helpful.
