What is the Massachusetts Dissolution by Bond

Posting a Lien Bond in Massachusetts

Once a lien is placed on real estate, it can cause multiple issues for the owner. For example, since a lien is a type of encumbrance, it appears on the title and might make it difficult to sell or mortgage the property. Often, a lien claimant will agree to dissolve a lien in exchange for the responsible party posting a bond that guarantees performance.

Any person with an interest may dissolve a lien by recording or causing to be recorded in the county registry of deeds where the land lies, a surety bond by a company authorized to do business in Massachusetts, in a penal sum equal to the amount of the lien sought to be dissolved conditioned for the payment of any sum which the claimant may recover on his claim for labor or labor and materials. M.G.L. Ch. 254, 14.

Upon the recording of the bond, the lien shall be dissolved. Id. Notice of the recording shall be given to the claimant by serving on the claimant a copy of the notice of recording together with a copy of the bond by an officer qualified to serve civil process or by delivering same to the claimant. Id. The claimant may enforce the bond by a civil action commenced within ninety (90) days after the later of the filing of the statement of account or receipt of notice of recording of the bond, but 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. The dissolution is then conditioned on the actual receipt of the bond. See Id.

The dissolution by bond form contains the following information: 1) principal's name; 2) surety's name; 3) lien claimant's name and address; 4) the bond amount; and 5) the indexed book, page, and instrument number of the previously recorded Notice of Contract. 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.

My E-deed was not excepted by the county, so I had to snail mail the documents to the recorders office. Will probably not use this site again, as it did not fulfill my purpose, but would recommend to those who do not have complicated forms.

I was very pleased to find ONLINE, Deed Revision Document(s) and their explanation. I ordered these document Forms, downloaded them and Printed them. Now, I will be able to fill them out in the privacy of my home. Instructions were also included, how to file this new Deed, after I complete it and have it Notarized. This has saved me time and emotional stress following the death of my husband.
THANK YOU.

This was such a money saver. I was told by someone at the courthouse that I had to have a lawyer prepare the paper work for my mom. They stated that family members couldn't prepare the papers. I was hopeful when I found that I could prepare the survivorship affidavit on Deeds. I was able to prepare everything myself and had no issues today when at the courthouse for all the changes. Thank you!
