I'm reviewing title and one showed up that is over a year old. I need to know if I can ask for it to be deleted from title or if we will need a Termination filed. I couldn't find that info when I Googled.

That's a great question. Looking at the Michigan mechanics lien statute, it does not appear that a Michigan Notice of Commencement will automatically expire after some predetermined date. So, if a Notice of Commencement must be cleared from a property title, that would likely require some active process - like having the party who filed the Notice of Commencement releasing the recording from the record.
