Under WI you must follow a format in order to file the mechanics/supplier's lien.
You must provide the owner with a Notice of WI Lien Rights, then serve them with an intent to file the lien, then you file the lien and serve the owner. Thereafter, you have 2 years to either release the lien or file suit to enforce the lien.
The lien is released by the filing a lien release document.
If you have not done any of this before, you are well advised to have a local business
attorney do it for you the first time---so you can see exactly what is involved. If you make a mistake, you may find yourself sued by the owner for Slander of Title---because in filing the lien, you are in effect placing a cloud on the title to the property and preventing the owner form selling it or even getting a loan based on the equity on the property.
