A Valley Springs, CA based concrete finishing subcontractor asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record multiple CALIFORNIA Mechanics Liens in Amador County for non-payment for work done on several new houses being built in the county seat of Jackson, CA. According to Wikipedia, Amador County bills itself as “The Heart of the Mother Lode” and lies within the Gold Country.
The Amador County Recorder’s Office fees to record are as follows: $87 for 1st page (includes $75 SB2: Building Homes and Jobs Act fee). $3 each additional page. (document size 8-1/2″ x 11″). Make checks payable to AMADOR COUNTY and they will accept out-of-state business checks.
Actual recording by mail is 1-2 business days. The original document will be mailed back, 3-4 weeks after recording.
Once a CALIFORNIA Mechanics Lien is recorded, as Claimant you are required to file suit to foreclose on the lien within ninety (90) days from date the CALIFORNIA Mechanics Lien was recorded. This deadline can be extended for up to a total of one (1) year with the consent of all legal parties by filing a CALIFORNIA Notice Of Credit for extension.
