A national cabinet supplier and installer asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record a NEW YORK Notice Under Mechanics Lien Law For Account Of Private Improvement on a new apartment community in Rotterdam, NY within Schenectady County. The city of Schenectady is the county seat and is also the home of UNION COLLEGE. According to Wikipedia “when it was founded in 1795, it was the first institution of higher learning chartered by the New York State Board of Regents.”
When recording a NEW YORK Notice Under Mechanic’s Lien Law For Account Of Private Improvement, you not only record the lien, but you also record with a copy of the lien a Affidavit Of Service By Certified Mail. This affects the fees you pay to record a lien. Cost for Schenectady County for the lien itself $15, regardless of the number of pages. In addition, you must include an Affidavit fee of $5, thus making the cost to record $20 total. The office does accept out of state business checks. Make the check out to SCHENECTADY COUNTY CLERK. There is no charge to release a lien. Include copy of recorded lien when releasing a lien.
Turn around time to record is same day received. Both a lien and affidavit recorded will be returned with one week.
Claimants are required to file suit to foreclose on a NEW YORK Notice Under Mechanic’s Lien Law For Account Of Private Improvement within one (1) year from the date the lien was recorded.
