Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

If the mechanic's lien was not filed, then it is not truly a mechanic's it would have not actual authority to lien the property for payment.

Nevertheless, if you've resolved the dispute, the best thing to do is to have a simple document drawn up that says the builder releases all claims against the property owner, the real estate and improvements.....and have the builder sign and date the document in the presence of a notary.

The response confirmed how we handled the issue and we filed the signed document with the county clerk.
