A national manufacturer and installer of retail mall and storefront signs asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record a NEW YORK Notice Under Mechanics Lien Law For Account Of Private Improvement on a small strip mall center located in Gouverneur, NY within St. Lawrence County. According to Wikipedia, the county is named for the Saint Lawrence River, which in turn was named for the Christian saint Lawrence of Rome, on whose Feast day the river was visited by French explorer Jacques Cartier.
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 to record a lien with the St. Lawrence County Clerk is $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 ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY CLERK. There is no charge to release a lien. Include a copy of the 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.
