The Address in our contract doesn't match what the Zlien research team found. However, both addresses have the same parcel number. Would the lien be enforceable no matter which address we list as long as the parcel is correct?

That's a good question. Looking at Indiana's specific requirements for a lien claim should help shed a little light here. Under § 32-28-3-3(c) of Indiana's lien statute, a lien statement must include the owner's name and their " latest address as shown on the property tax records of the county", as well as the legal description and the street number of the lot or land where the improvement is situated. Thus, whichever address appears in the property tax records is likely the one that should be utilized, as long as it pertains to the lot or land where the improvement is situated. If there are two addresses associated with the project property in the tax records, a claimant's safest option might be to include both addresses in order to cover all bases.
