Infographic: LienFinder™ - The Newest Addition to Your Credit-Management-Arsenal

Before providing materials or labor to a project or signing a contract with your customer, you must have a comprehensive and complete construction credit picture. As a construction credit professional, you probably use various credit reporting tools when qualifying your customers; unfortunately, despite these tools, it is likely you are left with gaps in information.

What is the missing information? Where is the missing information?

County recording o­ffices can be a great resource for construction credit professionals everywhere. Think about the various documents that are recorded: Notices of Commencement, Notices of Completion, Mechanic’s Liens, Performance Bonds, etc. Now, think about how much information is contained within these documents.

Unfortunately, locating recorded documents can be incredibly complicated, extremely cumbersome and downright frustrating. After all, each county and state provides varying levels of information in a multitude of formats. Knowing which database to search, knowing how to search and searching e­fficiently is nearly impossible.
