Yes, as long as the county you are filing with accepts it. However, some counties have moved to accept filing electronically only (due to social distancing requirements). Others do not accept filings by mail, only in person. It is best to call the county records office and verify which method is accepted before considering doing it in person.
If you are considering filing by mail, we suggest doing so with enough time before the deadline to avoid the risk of having your lien rejected or invalidated.

If you have been paid for the month you filed a lien on a property and you received the request to release the lien, then you should sign a lien release. However, if you are still owed for more months and filed a lien(s) for them as well, those liens should remain in place until the balance gets paid.
The project owner is who hired the general contractor and/or subcontractors to perform labor or services to a construction or repair project. If this person or company does not own the property but is only leasing or renting it, this is still the person you must list as the project owner. However, the real owner of the property should also receive copies of all documents since the lien will be attached to this person’s property.
