Business intelligence like you have never seen.

LienFinder™ captures essential construction project information on a daily basis, from hundreds of recording offices. Review the LienFinder database of nationally recorded mechanic’s liens and their subsequent amendments to avoid potential payment risks.

Recently updated with more versatile search, LienFinder™ is faster than ever. Virtually every field from party name to document type is searchable, with the ability to cross reference party and project fields.

You even have access to view copies of the actual recorded documents online in real time, when document images are available, or can easily request NCS Credit obtain a copy for you for a small fee.

docuLERT™: Create and save an unlimited number of queries to monitor and notify you with daily alerts of new filing activity. Each day, if new results are available, you will receive an email with convenient links to the newly added information.

docuLERT Manager™: Track new mechanic’s lien activity on parties within the ladder of supply for your active projects in NCS Online Services. If new filing activity in LienFinder contains a party(ies) that reasonably matches the owner, GC and/or customer on your project, you’ll be notified weekly via email.

Use docuLERT™ and docuLERT™ Manager to be notified as soon as liens are filed, to uncover potential payment risks on your current and future projects.

Your time is your most valuable asset. Let us deliver search results so you can make a better informed credit decision.

*Timing of email notifications may vary based on daily activity in LienFinder™.
**All matches established between LienFinder™ and NCS Online Services are based on preprogrammed search algorithms and variations in results are possible.
