Michigan Discharge of Lien

Discharging a Claim of Mechanics or Construction Lien in Michigan

Lien claims must be discharged when the underlying claim is paid or the lien must be dissolved for any other reason provided by law. To accomplish this, the claimant records a discharge of lien document in the Register of Deeds in the county where the property is located. The lien is officially released after recording this form.

The discharge of lien form contains the following information: (1) lien claimant's name, (2) amount of the lien claim, (3) the book and page number where the recorded lien claim can be found in the county register of deeds, (4) property owner's name, (5) legal property description, and (6) common name of the property. Take care when discharging the lien, because once the lien has been officially released, the claimant loses a valuable tool to coerce payment.

Joyce D. said: Good after I figured out the form process. Hopefully I won't be charged for two as I redid the request thinking I might have made a mistake in the first request.

Teri B. said: Glad to have all of the helpful extra information, even though they don't answer all questions for all situations. So, I accessed public records and asked questions at the auditor's office. Also, on my Mac computer, filling out the actual deed form is a challenge because the screen jumps to the last page everytime I try to type a few letters or hit the return key, so I'm rollling back up to the first 2 pages after most keystrokes. A bit annoying. Overall, happy to have these form options are available! There is really no need to wait and pay for an attorney when all the information needed is available via public records. Fill in the blanks!

Reply from Staff: Thanks so much for the feedback Teri. There are known issues between Adobe and Mac, we try to work around them as much as possible. Have a wonderful day!
