The notice of lien in Maine is governed by MRSA §3261. Once a complaint has been filed with the Superior or District Court, the clerk will execute a certificate detailing the complaint, the parties, the property description, and when it was filed. After this, the claimant will have 60 days to file a “notice of lien” with the registry of deeds in the county where the property is located. This can be accomplished by filing:

  • The certificate of the court clerk;
  • An affidavit setting forth all of the complaint filing information; or
  • An attested copy of the complaint

So, in essence, yes the “certificate” can be the same as the “notice of lien” that needs to be filed with the registry of deeds.
