Time Constraints: You must file your Lien Attachment with the County Recorder's office where the project is located within 90 days, inclusive, of the last furnishing of materials, labor or services. Serve copies on the owner, prime contractor and sureties, if any.

Perfection: After recording, you must file suit and notice of Pendency within 6 months of your last furnishing. Because of other requirements under South Carolina law we strongly urge you to file your lien with 145 days of your last furnishing.

Lien Bond: A Lien Bond may be filed to replace a lien as security and discharge the real property for the lien.

Payment Bond: Where a Payment Bond has been provided by a surety, file within the time frame as stated in the bond.

The usual remedy is to file to enforce all claims in one suit (see below, Procedures). In any case, we strongly recommend that your attorney handle the enforcement actions to perfect your lien claims.

Information Requirements: Program information and information for Exhibits A-D, any additional costs as to legal fees, court costs and interest charges (Do not pass these up. Estimate if necessary. In the case of Bond Claims, the sureties will reserve only the amount for which you make claim), and the county of the state where the recording will be made.

Form Types: Lien Statement of Account, Exhibit's A-D, if needed, Notice of Filing Lien, and Recorder's Letter.
