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.
