The Registrar of Deeds is also responsible for the Registry of Mechanics' Liens. This Registry permits the registration of a claim for lien against real property for work done or to be done, or materials placed or provided or to be placed or provided on a particular property.
Attached to the claim of lien is an affidavit of the person claiming the lien who has personal knowledge of the matters to be verified.
A claim of lien must be registered within 30 days of the completion or abandonment of the work done or materials placed or provided.
Certificates of Action must be filed with the Supreme Court, Trial Division Registry and subsequently registered in the Mechanics’ Liens Registry.
