Solar energy — consideration of a warrant article

Solar energy is becoming increasingly popular and systems are being installed across the State.

Recently MAAP has begun to issue six digit lien holder identification numbers, which has caused a problem within Avitar Clerk/MV as the original specification still specified only five character values. If you have experienced this problem we now have a fix we can apply for you. But first, some background. Continue reading

As you may be aware, the wording on the standard Affidavit of Execution of Tax Lien (Report of Tax Lien as required by RSA 80:64) has been challenged in the court case “Town of Northumberland vs. Gadway.” As a result, you may wish to file a corrective/confirmatory affidavit to your registry of deeds for your 2014 lien prior to September 30th, 2015, just to be safe.
