Can You Amend Your Claim of Lien?
Okay, you’ve recorded your lien within the required 90 days; now can you amend your claim of lien? Maybe, since this must be done during the period allowed for recording the original claim of lien and as long as (there always seems to be an “as long as” with these legal issues) the amendment does not cause someone relying on the original claim of lien to be impaired. So if you recorded your claim on the 90th day, you will be out of luck. Any amendment of the claim of lien must be recorded in the same manner as required for the recording of the original claim of lien.
All that said, be aware that amending a defective claim of lien does not necessarily render it enforceable. Because you will generally only have one opportunity to record and serve a claim of lien (too often filed quickly on the 89th or 90th day), be careful and get it right the first time.
