What is the Massachusetts Bond for Written Contract

Executing a surety bond is a great method to avoid ever having a lien placed on a property. A surety bond is a written promise to pay by the surety who guarantees any potential lien claimant or other party that he or she will make the necessary payments in connection with the written contract.

Any person, including the owner, with an interest in connection with a written contract may record, in the registry of deeds in the county or district where the land lies, a bond of a Massachusetts-authorized surety company in a penal sum equal to the contract sum or, if the contract does not contain a contract sum, in a penal sum equal to that person's fair estimate of the contract sum, all as set forth in the certificate on the bond. M.G.L. Ch. 254, 12.

Recording any such bond prevents any eligible claimant from attaching a lien for labor and/or materials performed under the contract in respect to which such bond is given. Id.

A valid bond for written contract identifies the parties, the location of the project, the amount of the bond, and relevant dates. Submit the completed and notarized bond document to the local recording office. Note that the register of deeds may refuse to record the bond if it fails to meet standards of form or substance, but no party to any such bond shall be discharged by any defect therein as against any party who has in good faith allowed his lien to be dissolved by lapse of time in reliance on the bond. Id.

The bond may be enforced by a civil action in the superior court or district court brought by any party in interest. Id. An attested copy of the complaint shall be filed and recorded in the registry of deeds. Id. No suit or action on the bond shall be commenced after the expiration of ninety (90) days after the claimant filed the statement. Id.

Such bond shall not create any rights which the claimant would not have had, or impair any defense which the obligors would have had, in an action to enforce a lien. Id.

This service is fantastic! Took a few tries to scan the document correctly, but their patience and quick turn around made this a far better experience than going to the County myself.

This service is amazing! We have tried several other online recording services which all disappointed. Deeds.com got all three of our documents recorded same day as invoice payment. Thank you for the quick turn around! We will be using this service often.

The Quit Claim Deed for the state of Ohio worked for me, saving me the cost of an attorney doing it. O.K., maybe that wouldn't have amounted to more than a few hundred dollars, but anywhere I thought I could save money (and learn something new on top of it) is something I want to do.

That said, be forwarned. While I'm not an attorney I'm not averse to spending many hours researching the lingo found in this kind of form and thoroughly understanding exactly how everything has to be filled in.

I should add that my ex-wife and I remain friends and she was the one giving me the property/house (thus, technically I filled out the forms on her behalf). Because there was no personal conflict, it made it easier to undertake.

Lastly, what others have said about the county office where you must file a Quit Claim Deed not being helpful, that's true in the sense that they do not want to be instructing non-attorneys on filling out the necessary forms. I did take a preliminary draft set of the forms to the county office but was VERY CAREFUL about explaining that I only needed a couple of questions answered about procedure for submitting the final documents. They were helpful once I made it clear I wasn't asking them for "legal advice". And their help was critical as the final submittals requires stopping at three different offices (MapDocuments, Auditor and finally the Recorder's office).

So I say thank you to Deeds.com. Their service for the Quit Claim Deed was invaluable.

Easy from the download to just fill out and print. Good instructions to follow. A cover letter form would be a extra plus
