How Do I Correct a Mistake on a Mechanics Lien I Filed on Property in Texas?
A lien claim may typically be amended by the filing of an amendment with the county clerk. The amendment will refer to the previous filing by date with identifying information and state the particular section of the previous filing that is being amended, along with stating the new amendment. If the initial period for filing a lien has expired, it may be necessary to submit a motion to the court to amend the lien, describing the nature of the error and why a correction should be allowed. A court is more likely to grant amendments that are inadvertent clerical errors that don't affect the amount claimed. I suggest calling the recorder's office where the lien was filed to inquire about applicable procedures and fees, as they vary by local office.
