I am trying to buy a property with a recorded mechanics lien for work done 30 years ago. I understand that this type of lien must be renewed (re-recorded?) every two years. I can find no record of any re-recording of this lien and I am trying to find the stature that covers this period to reference this period in a demand letter that the lien be released. In addition there is a secondary mechanics lien from a corporation that is no longer in existance. What is the statute that would apply for the removal of this lien, and what would be the process? Thank you.
