A national manufacturer and installer of retail mall and storefront signs asked our TRADITION LIEN SERVICE division to record a VERMONT Mechanic’s Lien (Vermont Statutes Annotated Title 9 § 1923) on a shopping center located in Morristown, VT within Lamoille County. According to Wikipedia, Lamoille County was buried in a mile of ice during the ice age. As the ice melted, Lake Stowe was formed. When the ice melted completely, the water from the lake ran out through the Lamoille River valley.
On private Commercial projects VERMONT Statutes Annotated Title 9 § 1923 mandates that General/Prime contractors and Subcontractors file a notarized VERMONT Mechanic’s Lien within one hundred eighty (180) days from the date the payment was due for providing equipment, labor, materials or services for a project. Record the lien with the clerk of the town in which the project is located. Cost to record a lien with the Morristown Town Clerk’s Office is $15 for a 1-page document. The office does accept out of state business checks. Make the check out to TOWN OF MORRISTOWN. 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 VERMONT Mechanic’s Lien is recorded, lien claimants must initiate a foreclosure action against the liened property within one hundred eighty (180) days of the date the VERMONT Mechanic’s Lien was recorded.
