How to have a Mechanics Lien removed
I am a homeowner who was remodeling my home in 2015. I obtained my building material through a building supply company. At that time the building supply company put a Mechanics lien on my property until job was completed and at that time I paid in in full. Now at this present time when I applied at my bank for a small personal loan the bank notified me that this lien was still on my property. After a few phone calls I was told that company was acquired by another company and they had no responsibility to my issue. I was then told by the original owner if I paid a $75 fee he would remove it.
Please help me understand how someone that has been paid in full on time now wants money to remove the lien. What are my recourse’s to get this lien removed. I have complete paper trail, Check, receipt, etc. Thank you,
