Good afternoon,

The person who can validate/verify the claim for the claimant must sign the mechanics lien.  The lien must be served before it can be recorded — in other words, the County Recorder will not accept the mechanics lien for recording unless a Proof of Service (which declares that the lien has been served) is attached.
