Missouri Lien Release

Releasing a Mechanic's Lien in Missouri

When a mechanic's lien debt has been paid off in full and there is no valid reason to continue encumbering the property, the claimant files a release to free the owner's land from the lien.

Under R.S.M.O. 429.120, whenever any debt, which is a lien upon any building or other improvement, shall be paid or satisfied, the creditor, if required, shall file an acknowledgment of such satisfaction with the clerk of the circuit court.

Failure to properly discharge a lien can lead to civil liability. If any creditor refuses to enter a satisfaction within ten (10) days after payment and request, he shall be liable to any person injured, to the amount of such injury and cost of suit. R.S.M.O. 429.130.

The lien release form contains the following information: 1) lien claimant's name and address; 2) owner's name and address; 3) address of the property subject to the lien; and 4) information about the filed lien such as date of filing, location filed (whether with the clerk of court or county recorder's office), and amount of the lien. The release should be filed with the same office where the original lien was filed or recorded.
