Lien Letter Requests

The City Clerk’s office will provide a certified statement of liens or assessments owing to the City on any property located within our municipal boundaries. This information is most often requested by closing attorneys or banks when property is being sold or refinanced. To ensure a timely response when requesting a lien letter, please provide the following information:

  • Name of the current property owner,
  • Legal description including the 10-digit Real Estate/Parcel number of the property, and
  • Property address (only one parcel number/address per letter).   
  • Payment is required at the time request is made:
    • The cost of each lien letter is $10.
    • Make checks payable to City of Atlantic Beach.    

Mail your request along with payment to City of Atlantic Beach, City Clerk's Office, 800 Seminole Road, Atlantic Beach, FL 32233.  The City processes lien letter requests in the order they are received.   Please allow no less than 5 days for processing.
