Mechanics Liens Being Challenged

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Scanlon Signing Services

Two states (Rhode Island and Connecticut) recently invalidated mechanics liens against commercial properties because they were improperly notarized. An Acknowledgement was used instead of a Jurat. A Jurat requires the signer to give an oath or affirmation attesting to the truthfulness of the document.

Notarizations are essential for mechanics lien statements across the United States but whether a mechanics lien does or does not need notarization varies from state to state. We must keep up with state laws and be aware of when an Acknowledgement is needed or a Jurat.
