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.

June G. said: AMAZING! Easy to use, reasonable fee - and get MUCH MORE than just a deed form. I ordered a "deed" and received a whole "package," including a guide and the jurisdiction's costs schedule and cover page that would be needed to record the deed - even included a Certificate of Transfer that is not required for a deed but something I needed for a different transaction. The website was extremely easy to use and the cautions about not disclosing personal information were so clear and personal, they made me feel secure in knowing this site was not trying to rip me off. Very professional. Well done.
