Can a name be removed from a mechanic's lien without cancelling a lien?

ArizonaLien WaiversMechanics Lien

A file was created in Levelset for one customer, but a separate homeowner with the same name was tied to the job. A mechanic’s lien was then filed, and the unrelated customer is understandably upset. 1. Can we remove the name of the unrelated customer from the lien without having to cancel the lien? 2. Will this have any permanent affect on the unrelated customers title?

Probably not. Release the old mechanic's lien with the wrong name. At the same time, file a new mechanic's lien with the correct name. The lien attaches to the property. So the lien may cause problems for the non-customer owner. But the solution to that problem is for the customer owner to pay what is owed so the lien gets released. The non-customer owner's problem is with their co-owner, not with the contractor who was not paid.
