What's the best course of action if exhibits are required with a lien filing, but the county isn't accepting the quality of the attachments?

Arizona

Maricopa County usually requires supporting documentation (contracts, preliens) to be including with a lien filing, but they're not accepting my attachments as "legible." If even the best scan of my original documents are being rejected, is there anything that can be done about it?

I'm sorry to hear about that - trouble with the recording office is hard to account for, but can certainly screw up even the best-laid plans. As you'd mentioned above, I would first be sure to utilize copies that are crystal-clear and as legible as possible. Unfortunately, I'm not sure that there is a very clear way to resolve this issue other than to send documents as high-quality as possible. However, calling the recorder's office and requesting further instruction on how to be sure an exhibit will be considered "legible" would probably be a good option. Of course, sometimes it can be hard to get someone on the other end of the line. The Maricopa County Recorder does have an FAQ section on their website, which can be found here: FAQs. I'm not sure how much help they'll be, though.
