Recently a commercial roofing contractor asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record a MONTANA Release of Construction Lien. A MONTANA Construction lien was recorded earlier this year on an existing piece of commercial property in Billings, MT within Yellowstone County. According to Wikipedia, Billings is the largest city in Montana, and has seen phenomenal growth due to the shale and oil discoveries and development nearby.
You cannot use a electronic recording service to record a lien with the Yellowstone County Clerk & Recorder. Recording must be done in person, by mail or by overnight delivery.
Fees to record a construction lien are as follows: $5.00 first page, $5.00 each additional page of 8-1/2″ x 11″ or 8-1/2″ x 14″ paper. There is no charge for file stamped copies. Make checks payable to CLERK & RECORDER and they will accept out-of-state business checks.
Actual recording is within one (1) business day. You can view indexing information on their website. The entire notice will appear five (5) business days after being recorded.
Your original document after it is recorded will be mailed back 5 (five) after it is recorded.
