Releasing a Mechanic's Lien in Oklahoma
Liens that expire or are otherwise no longer valid must be released. In order to release property from a mechanic's lien, a lien release form needs to be executed. There is no statutory lien release form, although under principles of contract law and the potential for civil damages caused by the lien, a lien claimant should release property when the lien is no longer justified.
In Oklahoma, the lien claimant must execute a form stating the lien has been paid off and should therefore be released and discharged from the record by the county clerk. The clerk is then authorized and directed to enter the satisfaction of the Lien onto the Lien Journal.
