TRADITION LIEN SERVICE recently recorded a CONNECTICUT Certificate of Lien for a water mitigation company against a residence within the Town of Monroe, CT. According to Wikipedia, it is named after James Monroe, fifth President of the United States.
CONNECTICUT construction liens are recorded in the specific Town, rather than by the County, that the construction related improvement is located at. The Monroe Town Clerk’s Office requires the entire legal property description from the deed “Schedule A” to be included with the lien. A copy can be gained online by doing a paid search at the CONNECTICUT TOWN CLERKS PORTAL.
Out of state business checks are accepted for payment. Fees totaled $65.00 for a two page construction lien (lien + Schedule A). The lien was recorded by mail, with same day for recording once it was received. The mailing back of the recorded lien was one week after recording.
Claimants must initiate a lawsuit to foreclose upon a liened CONNECTICUT property within one (1) year from the day the lien was recorded.
