Recording a CA Mechanics Lien in El Dorado County

Recently a Sacramento based windows business asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record a CALIFORNIA Mechanics Lien for a new custom home built in El Dorado Hills within El Dorado County. According to Wikipedia, El Dorado Hills is recognized nationally for its high median household income, ranking 77th in CNN Money Magazine’s best places to live in 2007, with the median household income for 2007 over $115,000.

Fees to record are as follows. $18.00 first page, $3.00 each additional page of 8-1/2″ x 11″ paper. $3.00 additional per page of 8-1/2″ x 14″ paper. Thus your typical lien should be $21 to record.

The actual time if mailed for recording is the same day received. It is 1-2 weeks after recordation to view indexing information on their website. The original document will be mailed back 2-3 weeks after recordation. A conforming copy of the original document can be sent the next business day after recordation. There is no extra fee if you include an additional copy of the notice and an additional self addressed stamped envelope. Indicate that you are requesting a conforming copy.

Recorded liens can not be viewed on their website.

As always, questions prior to recording a lien should be made by phone with the El Dorado County Recorder-Clerk’s Office. Hours of operation are Monday – Friday, 8AM – 4PM PST. Phone number to call is (530) 621-5490. The office is located off of U.S. Highway 50 and the Forni Road exit in Placerville, CA.
