The Release of Mechanic’s Lien Surety Bond is required when there is a lien against real estate property. A Mechanics Lien is a security interest in the title, typically filed by a contractor, subcontractor or supplier. The Release of Mechanic’s Lien Surety Bond then discharges the mechanic’s lien in order to allow the owner of the property the right to sell or deal with the property. All while ensuring that the claimant of the lien any payment that is still owed to them.
The bond amount is generally issued at a percentage over the lien amount and is determined by the court.
In most cases, the surety company will require collateral to secure the obligation. Collateral can be in the form of cash, or an Irrevocable Letter of Credit Issued by a financial institution acceptable to the surety. In rare instances for bonds in excess of $250,000, Real Estate can be used as collateral. With full financial disclosures, a surety may waive the collateral requirement.
