Release of Lien Bond

release of lien bond

A lien release bond may be required to remove a lien on a property. It is designed to replace the property as security for the lien.

When Will You Need to Obtain a Release of Lien Bond?

A lien may be placed on a property due to non-payment to a supplier or contractor involved in the construction or some other work completed on the property. For the lien to be removed from the property prior to satisfying the lien holder’s claim, a judge may require a lien release bond be put in place.

The lien release bond allows for the removal of the lien on the property. The lien is instead attached to a surety bond. The property owner is typically the principal on the bond, the party ultimately responsible for satisfying the lien. The responsibility is not shifted when the bond is put in place. The bonded property owner is still financially liable to the surety in instances where the surety has to pay a claim on the bond.

Determining the Release of Lien Bond Amount

A release of lien bond amount is determined by the court. The required bond amount is based on the amount of the lien. The bond amount set by the judge may exceed the amount of the lien. It’s not uncommon to see bond amounts set at 110% of the lien’s face value.

How Much Does a Release of Lien Bond Cost?

The cost of a release of lien bond is very much tied to the credit and financial status of the principal applying for the bond. Expressed as a percentage of the bond amount, the typical price range for the lien release bond is from 1% to 5%. However, quotes for this bond can come in higher than the stated range. As with most surety bonds, the better the credit and financial standing of the principal, the lower the quotes will be.

In some cases, quotes may contain collateral. A surety may provide a quote with a lower rate for a collateralized release of lien bond. In these cases, some form of collateral security, acceptable to the surety, is used to help mitigate the risk and can allow the surety to provide a lower rate.

What Will You Need to Include in a Lien Release Bond Request?

To submit a release of lien bond request, an individual will need to provide the following information:

  • Court Bond Application: This application outlines the release of lien bond request and provides information about the principal who is requesting the bond.
  • Court Documentation: Court documents offer details related to the case to the release of lien bond company.
  • Lien: This includes the initial lien filed against a contractor, information about the lien amount and parties that claim a payment is overdue.
  • Business Financial Statements: Balance sheets, income statements and other financial statements are required if a corporation is submitting a release of lien bond request.
  • Personal Financial Statement: If an individual is issuing a lien release bond request, he or she will need to provide a personal financial statement.
  • Current Bank Statements: Current bank statement that verify a principal's assets will need to be provided to a release of lien bond provider.
