Recording a TEXAS Lien Affidavit in Zavala County

By September 28, 2013No Comments

Zavala County is a rural county located in the southwestern portion of TEXAS. According to Wikipedia, the county’s per-capita income makes it one of the poorest counties in the United States.

A national discount retail chain recently built a new store in LaPryor, TX. Unfortunately after no response for payment from the out of state General Contractor, a TEXAS Lien Affidavit (Subcontractor/Supplier) needed to be recorded by our TRADITION NOTICE SERVICES division on behalf of a steel erection subcontractor against the property owner, the parent company of the store whose headquartes is located in NORTH CAROLINA.

A lien must include the street address of the property and the Lot and Block numbers. You can get a fax sent to you by the Zavala County Appraisal District at (830) 374-3475. Fees to record a lien are $18.00 first page, $4.00 each additional page of 8-1/2″ x 11″ or 8-1/2″ x 14″ paper. Make checks payable to: ZAVALA COUNTY CLERK. They do accept out of state business checks. The same charges apply to a release of lien.

Turn around time is quick, as the actual recording occurs the same day a lien is received. Recorded liens will be mailed back the next business day after recordation. Documents cannot be viewed on their website, and the Clerk’s Office does not send copies to the debtors.
