*Information concerning S. 160:
After the passage of S. 160, the SCDOR is charged with implementing a statewide lien registry. The SCDOR is working on the system and expects its implementation by the end of the year. As noted in the legislation, the SCDOR will notify clerks of court and registers of deeds once the system is ready. Until the new lien registry is available, counties should still update and maintain their current lien registries.
Please note: The lien registry currently available on MyDORWAY is not the lien registry called for in S. 160.
