By Massachusetts law, we have 10 business days from the time the request is received in our office to generate the Municipal Lien Certificate. Every attempt is made to shorten that turnaround time, but particularly during vacation, holiday and other busy times of the year (tax and bill due dates), it may take the entire 10 days allowed by law to process your request.

Please do not wait until the last minute to request your Municipal Lien Certificate.
