 Liens

Liens against real property in Marion County are often filed in the Recorder’s Office.  If a lien is filed against your property, contact the lienholder for more information. Generally, the lienholder is the only party able to release the lien.  As with any legal matter, you are encouraged to seek competent and professional legal counsel.

Mechanic’s Liens 
Generally, a mechanic’s lien is filed by a contractor providing goods or services on a property, but has not received payment. The purpose of the Indiana mechanic's lien statute is to provide a lien claimant with a remedy for payment for labor or materials furnished to the property.
 
Recording Fee includes  mailing a copy of the lien to the party the lien is being placed. $2.00 each additional mail out. Copy fee of $1.00/page will apply if additional copies not provided.
