    Answered . A recorded transcript of judgment acts as a lien on the property for 6 years from the date of recording. It can be refiled to extend the period at any time so long as the judgment is still good.

    The underlying judgment is good for 6 years if issued by the county court or small claims court and 20 years if issued by the District Court. The judgment can be renewed for an additional 6 or 20 year period if the creditor files the appropriate request with the Court.
