GeorgiaLien Foreclosure

In order to enforce a mechanics lien in GA does the vendor have to run a 100 year title search and clear the liens before executing? This is the practice with regular judgments. Thank you,

It is not required to do a 100 year title examination. However, it is necessary to conduct a title search in order to obtain valuable information concerning any competing claims. For example, are there security deeds or purchase money interests that have priority over your claim? are there property tax liens that also have priority over your claim? These are important issues affecting the value of your lien and any impediments to success on a lien foreclosure.
