A Granite Bay, CA based masonry subcontractor asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record a CALIFORNIA Mechanics Lien in Lake County for non-payment on for work done on the exterior of a new dollar store retail location located in the county seat of Lakeport, CA within Lake County. According to Wikipedia, Lake County the county takes its name from Clear Lake, the dominant geographic feature in the county and the largest natural lake wholly within California.
The Lake County Recorder’s Office fees to record are as follows: $89 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 LAKE COUNTY RECORDER and they will accept out-of-state business checks.

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.
