Important updates due to the Coronavirus:
- NY Courts closing 3/22/20 does not affect lien filings - Coronavirus lien filings are based on individual counties.
- Texas Mechanic's Liens in the Time of Corona
NACM STS through our Attorney network handles liens in all 50 states. Some county recorders' offices and courts are enacting policies to protect their workers. Since there are so many counties it is unclear how each of them will handle this situation. We currently know that some counties are choosing to only accept liens via mail. We anticipate this to become a norm for most counties. As a result, it is imperative that lien requests be submitted as soon as possible to ensure timely filing by mail. Local counsels will not be permitted to walk-in liens for recording. NACM STS and our Attorney network will take every effort to make sure that liens are timely filed, there is no guarantee they will be recorded the same day they are received via mail or e-filing. We highly recommend submitting liens for recording a minimum of three weeks prior to your deadline. We’ll continue to monitor this situation and keep you posted.
