The cost of recording a CALIFORNIA Mechanics Lien is $15.00 for the first page and $3.00 for each additional page. Checks are made payable to CALAVERAS COUNTY RECORDER and they accept out-of-state business checks.
The recording usually takes place the same day. The original will be mailed back in 4-6 weeks. Unfortunately, Calaveras County does not have viewable records on their website, but they will do conforming copies free of charge if you provide a copy and a self addressed stamped envelope.
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.
