The Recorder’s offices are usually slow these days due to the virus etc.
Did you put your return address in the upper left of the first page?
Don’t forget that you must sue on the lien 90 days after it is recorded or it will become invalid.
You also have to serve the lien. You have 90 days from recording to file a lawsuit to foreclose on the lien. You can also sue whoever your contract was with for breach of contract. The breach of contract case has a longer time frame.
Since it has not been that long since you recorded the lien, you may want to follow up with a demand letter and then consider next steps involving the court.
