You may order and pay for a Municipal Lien Certificate online or you may request a Municipal Lien Certificate from the Town of Leicester.
If you request an MLC from the Town, please include the following information with your request:
- A check made payable to the Town of Leicester in the amount of $50.00 per parcel.
- Please be aware that many residences are made up of two or more contiguous parcels. If the property owner receives more than one tax bill for the residence, then more than one Municipal Lien Certificate may be required.
- A stamped, self-addressed envelope
- Record Name of the property owner
- Property address
- Parcel identification
If you do not know the parcel identification number, you may go to the Assessors’ page on this web site and follow the steps to obtain parcel information for any property in the Town of Leicester.
Requests should be sent to
Office of the Collector,
3 Washburn Sq.,
Leicester, MA 01524.
By Massachusetts law, we have 10 business days from the time the request is received in this office to generate the Municipal Lien Certificate. Every attempt is made to shorten that turnaround time, but particularly during vacation and holiday times, or other busy times of the year, it may take the entire 10 days allowed by law to process your request.
PLEASE DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO REQUEST YOUR MUNICIPAL LIEN CERTIFICATE.
