Kentucky Mechanic’s Lien Form

A Kentucky mechanic’s lien allows workers to demand compensation if a client defaults on agreed payment for contracted work or materials on a property. The lien will attach to the property title and warn potential homebuyers or creditors that the owner has unsettled debts, as well as allow the worker to enforce a foreclosure suit.

Once the worker files their lien with the county clerk, they are required to furnish the owner a copy of the lien statement within seven (7) days of filing. If the owner repays the amount owed after the lien has been filed, the worker will be required to file a notarized lien release with the county clerk within thirty (30) days of receiving payment.

Workers who are not in direct contact with the owner of a residential project (e.g., subcontractors, suppliers, etc.) will be required to send a written notice within seventy-five (75) days of completion for claims less than $1000 and within one-hundred and twenty (120) days for claims over $1000. Failing to provide the owner with a preliminary notice will revoke the worker’s right to lien.
