Christopher J. Weiss

Removing a mechanic’s lien is governed by Florida Statute 713.21 Discharge of lien.—A lien properly perfected under this chapter may be discharged by any of the following methods:
(1) By entering (recording) satisfaction of the lien………….in the (recording department of the county where recorded)…. This satisfaction shall be signed by the lienor, the lienor’s agent or attorney and attested by said clerk. Any person who executes a claim of lien shall have authority to execute a satisfaction in the absence of actual notice of lack of authority to any person relying on the same. The satisfaction forms can be found on line. Here is the link to Seminole county’s form on line. http://www.seminoleclerk.org/FeesAndForms/Satis…

(2) By the satisfaction of the lienor, duly acknowledged and recorded in the clerk’s office. Any person who executes a claim of lien shall have authority to execute a satisfaction in the absence of actual notice of lack of authority to any person relying on the same.
