What should I do after getting paid?

If you get paid after filing a lien on a property, you will very likely be requested to “remove the lien” or sign a lien release. The lien release demonstrates that the debt was fully paid or was settled. The lien release must be filed with the County Property Records where the original lien affidavit was filed and signed by the entity who filed the lien in the first place.
After receiving the written request for a lien release, the contractor is required to either file or send the lien release to the project owner within ten (10) days.
