Municipal Liens

To request a Municipal Lien Certificate from the Town of Auburn, please include the following information with your request:

  • Parcel Identification
  • Property Address
  • Record Name of the Property Owner

Request Parcel Information

If you do not know the parcel identification number, you may go to the Assessors’ page and follow the steps to obtain parcel information for any property in the Town of Auburn. Requests should be sent to:
Office of the Treasurer/Collector
104 Central Street
Auburn MA 01501

You must also include with your request, a check made payable to the Town of Auburn in the amount of $25 per parcel for residential property and $150 per parcel for commercial property in a stamped, self-addressed envelope.


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.
