I need to know if an addendum alone as a lien can be removed. I'm in Washington State. About to close and escrow needs a payoff letter. The lien should be on another property in which the loan was for. Not this one.

Welcome and thank you for your question. How is the addendum showing up as a lien? Was the addendum recorded against the real property?

I see that this was recorded. I see a stamp on the second image you attached. Is that correct?

We would need the to have a release of lien signed by the lender and recorded in the county or have the title company record the release. Would the "lender" sign a release?

She will if I can find an attorney tonight whom will write something up which says that she will get paid at closing when when sold which is scheduled within 75 business days. This is an emergency refi with a hard money lender because Note on my property expires at midnight.

The form will work perfectly, I cannot see the recording information. Can you open the link?

All she would need is to draft the same addendum and hold off recording it until the close of escrow completes.
