Notice of Claim of Lien
BoatWiki - Forms
Use of this form may have legal and tax implications.
You should consult with an attorney or professional about any such concerns.
The Notice of Claim of Lien form is designed for filing a maritime claim against a USCG documented vessel. This is recorded with the National Vessel Documentation Center (NVDC).
Although a vessel claim of lien places the public on notice of such occurrence, it does not confer any rights of foreclosure. Nor does it enhance its validity. It is designed for notational purposes only and does not encumber the documentation. Although the NVDC does not discern as to the type of claim, it is intended for maritime liens related to the vessel's operations.
The claim of lien form and it's accompanying declaration are downloadable from BoatWiki's repository. It is provided in Microsoft Word format with tabbable fielding. The body itself can be altered by choosing the unprotect option from your application's tool menu. It will then need to be re-protected in order to recover the fielding functionality.
Certain steps must be taken in conjunction with filing a Notice of Claim of Lien. A link to guidelines on how to go about this can be found in the WikiTags and WikiLinks.
Although filing a claim of lien is mainly functional for establishing it's existence, it is effective in that most lenders and buyers will insist on it's negation.
