Recording a SC Notice of Mechanics Lien in Charleston County

A Georgia based manufacturer of modular offices, pre-fabricated buildings and steel mezzanines asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record a SOUTH CAROLINA Notice of Mechanics Lien on a auto parts manufacturer who retrofitted an existing industrial facility in North Charleston, SC within Charleston County. According to Wikipedia, North Charleston is the 3rd largest city in the state of SOUTH CAROLINA.

Fees to record with the Register Mesne Conveyance Office for the county are as follows: $10.00 for the first four (4) pages, $1.00 each additional page of 8-1/2″ x 11″ or 8-1/2″ x 14″ paper. There is no charge for file stamped copies. Make checks payable to CHARLESTON COUNTY RMC and they will accept out-of-state business checks.

Actual recording occurs on the same day a lien or release is received. You can view the entire lien document on their website one (1) business day after being recorded. It takes 7-10 days after recording for the original document to be mailed back: Send self-addressed stamped envelope or pay $.50 cents extra for return of recorded notice. For a conformed copy to be returned, include self-addressed stamped envelope or pay $0.50 extra. Put a note on copy to be stamped on the day of recording.
