Property Assessments and Liens

When the total amount due (assessment + interest) has been paid, a Release of Lien document will be generated. You will be charged a fee for a Release of Lien document associated with paving and nuisance abatement liens.

Please be reminded that liens remain with the property and must be settled prior to the transfer or sale of the property.

Upon payment in full, the Release of Lien document will be created and sent to the payee and then should be promptly filed with Harris County Real Property Records Division, providing that it contains no errors. For specific instructions, please call the Harris County office at (713)755-6439.
