Releasing a Mechanic's Lien in New Hampshire

Mechanic's liens are governed by Chapter 447 of the New Hampshire Statutes.

Use a lien release form when a filed mechanic's lien is no longer needed because the underlying obligation has been paid off, the claim has been settled between the parties, or for any other valid reason.

The lien created by RSA 447:2-7, inclusive, shall continue for 120 days after the services are performed, or the materials, supplies or other things are furnished, unless payment is previously made, and shall take precedence of all prior claims except liens on account of taxes. NH RSA 447:9. Therefore, the release can be used to officially cancel a lien after the expiration of time. Any compelled release will not be recognized unless it was made in consideration of payment on the underlying claim.

In addition to meeting all local standards for recorded documents, the lien release identifies the parties, the location of the work, recording information for the filed lien, and relevant dates and amounts. Once completed and notarized, the claimant submits the release form to the same office where the lien is on file.

Linda C. said: If I hadn't spent my career as an escrow officer (albeit in another state), I may have had a hard time figuring out exactly which deed I needed and how to prepare them, even with the back-up informational, how-to pdf documents, without an attorney. My experience speaks to how much the general public doesn't understand and how confusing it can be. Nonetheless, the access to so many documents at a fairly reasonable cost, the basic how-to docs made available along with the purchased doc makes all the difference. I appreciate having such things available to the public. Many thanks.
