First, it's worth noting that any time there's a flaw on the face of a mechanics lien, it's possible that flaw could potentially result in a lien being deemed invalid. But, not every little mistake will invalidate a lien claim - matters are really determined on a case-by-case basis. At the same time, it's also worth noting that most mechanics lien claims are resolved without having a court weigh-in, and, ultimately, whether or not a lien will stand would be up to the court (if it comes to that).

What's more, note that any time a lien is filed but there are issues with that filing, a lien claimant can fix the issue by either filing a new claim and removing the original, or potentially by amending the lien claim.

In a situation where an amount is left blank on the lien form, but that amount exists elsewhere o the form, presumably, that shouldn't necessarily be fatal to the claim since the information does appear on the form. But again - that'd ultimately be up to the court, if it came to that, and lien claims can be invalidated on questionable grounds.
