How to Remove a Wrongfully Recorded Lien?

How Can you Remove an Invalid Lien Recorded Against Your Home?

Occasionally, I am approached by clients who believe someone has recorded an invalid lien against their Property and want to know what they can do to remove it.

A.R.S. 33-420: Discusses the issues of remove groundless or fraudulent liens that have been filed.

A.R.S. 33-420(A): Provides a property owner at least $5000, or treble the actual damages caused by the recording of forged, groundless, misstated, or contains false claims. 

A.R.S. 33-420(C): Provides the property owner $1000, or treble actual damages, whichever is greater, and attorney fees and costs, if he willfully refuses to release or correct such document of record within 20-days from the date of a written request from the owner or beneficial title holder of the real property.
