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.

This article is provided for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon a substitute for the advice from an attorney. For questions regarding filing a lien release, or any other issues related to property liens, please speak with a licensed Maryland attorney.

I wish I used this site more often. The format is pretty easy but the messages were invaluable and the staff were great. I was able to complete my transaction in a Covid environment from the security of my own home. Great service and tools!

I was very happy with the document package that I purchased. It contained all of the necessary documents and a few extras I had not thought about.
Perhaps if you provided a link to download all of the documents with one click, it would make it a little easier.

The link for the note guidelines just shows the same directions as for the mortgage. Other than that, very helpful.
