The City of Punta Gorda has recently partnered with Orange Lien Data to process all lien searches/estoppel requests from title companies, closing agents and others seeking to obtain information about outstanding debt owed to the City. Effective September 10, 2018, all lien search/estoppel letter requests must be processed through Orange Lien Data at https://order.orangelien.com. We ask that you please take note of this change for all future requests.
If you are not already registered with Orange Lien, please visit their website listed above to establish an account. If you already have an account, simply log in and select “City of Punta Gorda” from the drop down menu.
The expedited (24-48 Hours) search fee is $60.00. There are no additional processing fees.
Orange Lien Data will only report on outstanding debt owed to the City of Punta Gorda. All liens against the property, including those issued by the City, are recorded in the Official Records of Charlotte County, Florida. A full search should still be made by a title company or real estate attorney.
To ensure a clear title upon transfer of ownership of a property, a lien must be paid prior to the transfer. Lien payoffs shall be made directly to the City of Punta Gorda. Please allow 5 business days for payoff processing and issuance of a release of lien.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
