Alabama law requires that a mechanics lien be enforced within 6 months from the date the entire amount became due. If this 6-month period passes without an action being filed to enforce the lien, the lien expires.

While the lien is well past being enforceable, it still appears on the property records. However, if you wish to have it removed, a petition may be filed to have the lien stricken and removed. This proceeding should be fairly straightforward given the age of the lien.
