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.

Communication is hard. The reps need to be empowered and encouraged to call the customers when necessary. They encourage 300 dpi resolution and under 2 MB PDF file, which is not even possible with our scanner. They made a vague comment about a legal description looking abbreviated but did not explain. They refused to call me. They said the county said "Image is light please darken", but the image looked fine to me. Maybe not their fault, but they refused to help work with the county on that for me. I followed their suggestion though and re-scanned at 300 dpi, but they misunderstood me and did not re-submit it right away. Over 48 hours later, it's still not recorded yet. I hope it will be today.

extremely satisfied with the service. I could not get file size correctly at the beginning. I received quick responses pointing out specific problem, which was very helpful for me to correct the mistake. It took 5 or 6 times due to different errors to finally achieve the qualified version. The customer care team was very patient walking me through the process.
