Municipal Lien

A Certificate of Municipal Lien (CML) tells how much tax is owed on a property. A City of Worcester CML may be ordered through our online payment partner or by submitting a CML Request Form to the Treasurer and Collector's Office. We will complete the certificate and return it to you within 10 business days of the receipt of your request.

Please fill out a separate form for each parcel (map/block/lot) requested. You must also include payment, in the correct amount, per certificate with your request.


The certificate cost varies. To determine the CML fee please use the search below. The price with a link to order online will appear at the bottom of the CML Details or you can download a CML Request form.
