An Commerce City, CO subcontractor that specializes in counter tops and tile asked TRADITION LIEN SERVICE to record a COLORADO Statement of Lien (Colorado Revised Statutes § 38-22-109(1)) on a new retail/condo building located in Denver, CO within Denver County.

COLORADO Revised Statutes § 38-22-109 mandates that General/Prime contractors and Subcontractors on private Commercial projects can record a notarized COLORADO Statement Of Lien up to four (4) months after the last day providing equipment, labor, materials or services if the Owner was previously given a COLORADO Notice Of Intent To File A Lien Statement and pre-recorded COLORADO Statement Of Lien ten (10) days prior to recording the lien. Record at the Clerk and Recorder’s Office in the county where the project is located. Cost to record a lien with the Denver County Clerk is $13 for first page and $5 for each additional page. The office does accept out of state business checks. Make the check out to DENVER COUNTY CLERK & RECORDER. Include a self addressed stamped envelope.

Turn around time to record is 1-2 business days. Recorded liens and releases will be returned within 2-5 business days.

Once a COLORADO Statement of Lien is recorded, as Claimant you are required to initiate a lawsuit to foreclose upon the liened property within six (6) months of the last day providing equipment, labor, materials or services for a project.
