About Ohio Mechanics Lien Form

When unpaid on a construction project in Ohio, you may have the right to file a mechanics lien. This product includes the preparation, filing and service of your mechanics lien. The Ohio Mechanics Lien must be filed with the county recorder of the county in which the improved property is located. If the improved property is located in more than one county an affidavit should be filed with the county recorder of each county in which the improved property lies. A copy of the lien must be served upon the property owner via certified mail, with return receipt requested. It must be served within 30 days of the filing of the lien. If the mechanics lien cannot be served within this 30 day period, the claimant should post a copy “in some conspicuous place on the premises of the improved property within ten days after the expiration of the thirty days.” Click the button to download the free Ohio mechanics lien form.
