Recording a AL Statement of Lien in Winston County

A national manufacturer and installer of retail mall and storefront signs asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record a ALABAMA Statement of Lien on a shopping center located in Haleyville, AL within Winston County. According to Wikipedia, Winston County is named in honor of John A. Winston, the fifteenth Governor of Alabama.

ALABAMA Code ยง 35-11-213 mandates that a notarized ALABAMA Statement Of Lien can be recorded at any time up to four (4) months (Subcontractors) or six (6) months (General/Prime Contractors) after the last day providing equipment, labor, materials or services for a private Commercial project. Record at the County Probate Judge’s office where a project was located. Cost to record a lien with the Winston County Probate Judge is $4 for a 1-page document. The office does accept out of state business checks. Make the check out to PROBATE JUDGE. Include a self addressed stamped envelope.
