Release of Lien Bonds


Release of Lien Bond Information

A Release of Lien Bond is required to discharge liens against property. A lien may be filed by a third party such as a supplier or subcontractor who is involved in a construction project. Thus, the bond may be required of the general contractor obligated to pay these parties. Ownership of real estate cannot be transferred unless the property is free of liens or a Release of Lien Bond has been filed. The bond protects the party who filed the lien against the property and guarantees payment will be made to this party.
