In accordance with ORS 93.643 the City is required to record certain liens in the County Clerk’s office or provide access by an online electronic medium. The City of Portland contracts with the Net Asset Corporation to provide internet access to a system called Conduits. This is a fee based service that most subscribers such as title companies, escrow agents, financial institutions, and real estate professionals utilize in performing searches as part of real estate transactions.
The current lien search fee is $20.00 for each property search performed.
If you need one time, or infrequent searches, it is recommended that you contact a title company to perform the search for you.
