Missouri Claim of Lien

Claiming a Missouri Mechanic's Lien

In Missouri, Mechanic's Liens are used to place a block on a property owner's title when a contractor, materials supplier, or other laborer such as a subcontractor has not been paid for labor, materials, or equipment provided.

Under R.S.M.O. 429.080, all eligible individuals seeking to obtain the benefit of a mechanic lien must file a claim of lien within six (6) months after the indebtedness accrues, or, with respect to rental equipment or machinery rented to others, within sixty (60) days after the date the last of the rental equipment or machinery was last removed from the property.

The claim must state a just and true account of the demand due after all just credits have been given, and that amount becomes a lien upon such building or other improvements. It also includes the names and addresses of the lien claimant and property owners; a true description of the property; a description of the labor, materials, or equipment provided; and the amount the lien is claimed for. Id. The claim must also be verified by the oath of the claimant or some credible person for him before a notary. Id. Record the completed claim of lien with the clerk of the circuit court of the county where the property is situated.

Maria S. said: The paperwork/forms are fine, but there isn't enough explanation for me to figure out how to file the extra forms (which I do need in my case). The main form, Deed Upon Death is fine. I think the price is pretty high for these forms. I wouldn't have purchased it because there are places to get them for much cheaper (about 6 dollars), but this site had the extra forms I wanted (property in a trust and another form). Unfortunately these were included as a "courtesy" and there are no instructions for them. So three stars for being clear about what was in the package, having the right forms that I need, but instructions for putting them to use and price took a couple of stars off. Downloading was easy and once you download you can type the info into the PDF--that makes working with the forms much easier.

Reply from Staff: Thank you for the feedback Maria. Regarding the supplement documents, it is best to get assistance from the agency that requires them. These are not legal documents, they should provide full support and guidance for them.
