Procedures for Discharging Lien

When a lien is fully paid after notice has been filed in the Clerk’s office, the lien holder is required to have the clerk enter a discharge of such lien, or execute a release of such lien, which is then recorded.

If a party refuses to release or discharge a satisfied lien, the circuit court may order a release of the lien after providing notice to the refusing party, and there being no good cause shown against the release.
