Oregon's Construction Lien Law is codified at ORS 87.001 to 87.060 and 87.075 to 87.093.

Property owners and other interested parties who contract for construction work need to be vigilant and ensure that their property remains free from a mechanic's lien, especially those of any "hidden" lien claimants that may be working under another party and the owner is unaware. Therefore, an owner should draft, record, and post at a job site, a Notice of Completion, upon the jobs completion, because a lien must be perfected no later than 75 days after the project has ended or been abandoned.

In Oregon, a construction project is deemed complete when (a) the improvement is substantially complete; (b) a completion notice is posted and recorded; or (c) the improvement is abandoned. O.R.S. 87.045(1).

When all original contractors employed on the construction of the improvement have substantially performed their contracts, any original contractor, the owner or mortgagee, or an agent of any of them may post and record a completion notice. O.R.S. 87.045(2). The completion notice must include a legal description of the property, the date the notice was sent, and the signer's name and address. Id.

When completed, the Notice must be posted on the date it bears in some conspicuous place upon the land or upon the improvement situated thereon. O.R.S. 87.045(3). A copy of the Notice must also be recorded within five days from the date of its posting, by the party posting it (or his or her agent), in the recording office of the county in which the property, (or some part) is situated. Id. A copy of the notice, together with an affidavit made by the person posting the notice, stating the date, place and manner of posting the notice, must be attached to the Notice of Completion when it's recorded. Id.

Anyone claiming a lien created on the premises described in a completion or abandonment notice for labor or services performed and materials or equipment used prior to the date of the notice must perfect the lien on the 75th day after work on the construction of the improvement ceases. O.R.S. 87.045(4).

Proper use of a Notice of Completion will protect property owners by allowing them to know who might have a potential lien claim and start the clock ticking for the time to record such liens.

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

This package of documents from Deeds.com has been extremely helpful, particularly for one who has never needed this kind of service before and is unfamiliar with legal documents in general. It is well worth the price; I would recommend this company to anyone needing help with legal documents and information.

It was fast, secure, and reliable, and for the cost it saved me time, and driving four hours to the courthouse and back. It really saved me. Thank You.

Was driven to this site by the county website. It took a bit of work having to create an account, etc. The example was useful; however the example only showed both parties in the same county, nor did the instructions mention anything about differing counties. This caused an oversight on my part.

Great experience! Instructions are very clear and thorough. The completeness of the instructions really inspired confidence. Within minutes of uploading my document, I received a message that it had been prepared and submitted to the county for recording. Makes it so simple! Well worth it.
