How Online Filing Services Work

A Guide to Online Filing with Texas Easy Lien

Notarizing, filing, and mailing online is fast, secure, legitimate and affordable.

Why hire an expensive lawyer when you can file electronically in minutes?

Contrary to popular belief among contractors, suppliers, and many professionals who work in the construction industry, hiring an attorney is not the only option for drafting, notarizing, and filing lien documents. Texas Easy Lien has developed an electronic process designed to efficiently meet the Texas Property Code requirements.

Through our online platform, you can conveniently complete all essential documents and services online, offering a convenient, cost-effective, and time-saving alternative to hiring a lawyer.” The entire process is simple and straightforward, but if you need some help or have any questions, we are always here to help.

*Note: Some counties do not accept online filing. In this case, you will need to take or mail your notarized document(s) to the corresponding county office. Visit our FAQ page to see which counties accept electronic filing.

Our online filing services are as legitimate as what law offices do. Just a whole lot faster.

How online filing services work in your Texas Easy Lien dashboard:

SELECT. COMPLETE. APPROVE.

Choose, complete, review, and approve the appropriate document and add it to your cart. Unsure of which document(s) you need or how to complete them? Visit the Deadline to file a lien page to determine the document you must complete and get step-by-step instructions.

ADD “NOTARY,”, “FILING” AND “MAILING” TO CART. PAY.

After you have reviewed, approved, and added the document to your cart, you will have the option to add the online services available to your specific document, like Notary, Filing, and Mailing (see pricing below).

Want to use your own notary? No problem. Add only filing and mailing services and proceed to checkout.
