Liens

  • The Financial Services Division, which includes Utility Billing, Licensing, Passports and Titles, Liens and Collections, will be closed on Thursday, Sept. 20 from 11:15 to 1:15 pm for an annual team-building event.

    If you have a water emergency that cannot wait, please call 503-618-2626.


    The City has assessment liens, System Development Charges, financing agreements, code enforcement, civil penalties, rental housing and utility liens.  

    Unpaid amounts owed by a previous bill payer at a service address (lien balance) remain with the service address account, and the current owner of that property is responsible for those charges. This is in accordance with state law and city codes.

    Contact your Realtor or title insurance company involved in the sale to ensure no outstanding liens are attached to the property. 

    We record our liens with Multnomah County and on our online lien docket.

    To check on liens in Gresham, contact us at 503-618-2380 or PayoffRequests@GreshamOregon.gov.
