Oklahoma Affidavit of Cancellation of Lien

Liens are pesky creatures and if your property is plagued by one, you probably are looking for methods to remove it. Sometimes liens can be erroneously placed on your property or the claimant neglects to ever enforce the lien. Therefore, by filing an Affidavit of Lien Cancellation, you swear to the court that the facts behind the lien justify its cancellation.

If any lien is filed, and no action to foreclose the lien has commenced, the owner of the land may file a petition in the district court of the county in which the land is situated, naming the lien claimants as defendants, and requesting the court for an decision of the lien, and if the lien claimant fails establish a lien, the court may tax against the claimant the whole, or a portion of the costs of the action as may be just. O.S. 42-177.

Liens also can be cancelled by becoming time-barred. If no action to foreclose or settle the lien is filed within one (1) year from the filing of the lien, the lien is canceled by limitation of law. Id. If a lien is canceled by limitation of law, the owner of the land may file an affidavit proving its cancellation with the county clerk of the county in which the land is located. Id. Upon receipt of the affidavit, the county clerk will attach the affidavit to the original lien document in the lien docket file and enter a notation of the filing in the mechanics' lien journal. Id.

Ron S. said: Fair price and beneficiary deed was recorded without issue. Completion instructions provided were insufficient in some cases.

Reply from Staff: Thank you!


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.

Thomas W. said: easy to use, no problems except in beneficiary box. Need to make the box bigger because I have 4 beneficiaries to list. how do I enlarge the box.

Reply from Staff: Thanks for reaching out. All available space on the document is being used. As is noted in the guide, if you have information that does not fit in the available space the included exhibit page should be used.


Robert T. said: Perfect. Downloaded the forms with no issues, filled them out, had them notarized and recorded all in just a few hours (most of that time was spent at the recorder's office). Highly recommend.
