City Liens


Changes in ORS 93.643 and ORS 223.230 require the City to record certain liens in the Polk County Clerk’s office or provide access by an on-line electronic medium. The City provides access to this information through a contract with Net Assets Corp. The lien information consists of nuisance abatement charges, court fines, and unpaid water and sewer user charges.


See "Lien Searches" below for instructions on how the City's lien docket is accessed. The on-line system is called Conduits and it 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.

Anyone wanting a user name and password to access lien information should contact Net Assets at

or by calling 541.485.8876. The registration process is handled electronically the first time you place an inquiry/search on property in Falls City. Once your registration is authorized, you will receive an email to the address provided on your registration.

The fee to access lien information is $35.00 per property searched. Net Assets, on behalf of the City, will prepare and send invoices monthly for any searches done. Every effort is made to keep the lien docket up-to-date; however, title companies (and other searchers) are strongly encouraged to verify final pay-off amounts by contacting the City Clerk directly. This is especially true for liens that include an interest component.

The City of Falls City began using an electronic source via the World Wide Web at effective Monday, June 15, 2009.
