A Round Rock, TX company that specializes in Division 7 specifications (thermal and moisture protection) asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record a TEXAS Lien Affidavit (Texas Property Code §§ 55.054, 53.056, 53.103) on luxury garage condo complex located in Roanoke, TX within Denton County. According to Wikipedia, Denton County was named for John B. Denton, and was established in 1846. In 2007, it was one of the fastest-growing counties in the United States.
On private Commercial projects TEXAS Property Code mandates that a General/Prime contractors and Subcontractors may file a notarized TEXAS Lien Affidavit for a commercial project by the 15th day of the month, four (4) months after the completion of providing equipment, labor, materials or services for a project. Record the lien with the clerk of the county in which the project is located. Cost to record a lien with the Denton County Clerk’s Office is $26 for the first page and $4 for each additional page. The office does accept out of state business checks. Make the check out to DENTON COUNTY CLERK. Include a self addressed stamped envelope.
Turn around time to record is 2-5 business days. Recorded liens and releases will be returned with one week.
Once a Lien Affidavit is recorded, lien claimants must file suit to foreclose on the lien within two (2) years from date a lien was recorded or one (1) year from entire project completion date, whichever is later.
