Submit a Lien

In most instances, our Lien Department guarantees same day registration of lien requests received by 3:00 p.m. Click here to obtain our lien instruction form. Please complete the form and return to our lien department via email or fax, as noted on the instruction form.*

Please note that no cost is charged to the condominium corporation in the majority of lien proceedings. We will look to the unit owner for payment of our account, provided that we are given the authority to take all necessary steps to collect the outstanding arrears and legal costs.  However, in a very small percentage of cases, and for various reasons (usually relating to accounting errors), some or all costs are not collectable from the unit owner or their mortgagee.  The condominium corporation would then be responsible for payment of any such uncollectable costs.

*Please be advised that if your instructions include an amount pertaining to a “chargeback”, we cannot guarantee same-day issuance of a Notice of Lien or registration of a lien, as legal research will be required to determine whether the chargeback is recoverable by way of a lien. Please be sure to include all documentation pertaining to the chargeback in order to expedite the legal research. If it is determined that the chargeback amount cannot be collected by way of lien, the corporation will be responsible for the legal costs associated with the legal research.
