Owners Affidavit Regarding Liens in New Hampshire

Construction liens are governed by Chapter 447 of the New Hampshire Statutes.

In New Hampshire, property owners can use an affidavit containing details of all parties that have contracted with the owner to perform work on a project or job on the owner's property in excess of $1,000.00. The purpose of the document is to provide notice of all parties that have contracted with the owner but who may not have contracted with the general contractor.

The property owner should have personal knowledge and personally inspect the status and progress of work on the project. The owner should also review the general contractor's affidavit, if any, and the payment of any prior requisitions before making this certification. Be aware that affidavits are sworn statements, made under oath, and thus any false statement is subject to penalties for perjury.

The affidavit certifies: 1) that all work on the project or job and material supplied covered by the current requisition and prior disbursements has been completed or supplied as the case may be; and 2) that upon payment of the current requisition all subcontractors/materialmen covered by the current requisition will have been paid. It also includes copies of any associated contracts and/or notices. N.H. R.S.A. 447:12-A.

The affidavit also states that the Initial Notice of Construction Mortgage was posted at the job site pursuant to N.H. R.S.A. 447:12-b, I & III at the date and hour set forth therein and said Notice has remained posted and will continue to be posted there until the project/job has been completed. Lastly, the affidavit contains a covenant that the owner agrees to defend, indemnify and hold the recipient harmless from and against any and all liability arising in any way out of the falsity of the statements made above.

Excellent service, no hassle, easy to use, affordable, best service -- hands down. I thought it would be difficult for me to record a deed in Florida while residing in California but you made it so easy. I will tell everyone about your service.rnThank you.

Deed.com is an amazing site. After calling many places and going on many websites to figure out what I needed to submit (most counties cannot help with questions and the place I needed to turn the documents into could not help either, they are not allowed to give legal advice) I came across Deeds.com. It has been so helpful and I was able to research what documents I needed. I purchased one document and after more research I realized I needed a different document. Deed.com refunded my first purchase. I then purchased an Affidavit of Death and a Deed for the county and state I needed them for. Both the example and guide were very helpful and I will be submitting my documents after I have them notarized. I give five stars

Easy to complete. I would suggest, since it is 2 pages, make a bigger space for land descriptions & sources.

This was very easy to use to record my NOC. With the new COVID restrictions, I can't record my NOC in person and I'm working from home. This was a huge convenience and easy to use. I submitted the NOC late in the day and had the recorded NOC the next day.

Really solid system for determining what may prevent your documents from being accepted. I love the comments section allowing for fluid communication. I only wish there were automated emails for all those communications and once documents were accepted, but I did receive a couple personally-generated emails regarding the progress instructing me to check the site.

This service is WONDERUL. I spent 14 years trying to get a deed recorded properly. Deeds.com kept submitting and resubmitting after corrections until it was finally accepted. They did in one day what I couldn't get done in 14 years!
