About New Jersey Discharge of Public Lien Form

The New Jersey Discharge of Public Lien Form is used to cancel (or discharge) a public lien that has already been filed. It’s most often used to release a lien claim after a lien claimant receives payment. However, they may also be released based on settlements, legal controversies, because they expired, or more.

New Jersey law requires that a lien cancellation is filed within 30 days after the lien is satisfied. Failure to release a lien could result in penalties for the lien claimant.

Pro tip: If the construction project where the lien was filing is a private job (and not a public job), you may need to use the New Jersey Mechanics Lien Release Form instead.

Complete the form on the right to download your free New Jersey Discharge of Public Lien Form template that can be filled out with a PDF editor or by hand after printing. Use this template to easily file your lien release at the same county clerk’s office where the original lien was filed.
