The City of Medford files liens with Net Assets; it does not file liens with the Jackson County Clerk.  A one-time lien search can be completed by calling the Finance Department at 541-774-2030 for a fee of $27 per address. 

If you are a title company, realtor, or other entity that would like to have access to the Net Assets Conduit platform so you can perform your own lien searches, you may do so by contacting Net Assets at 541-485-8876.  The $27 fee per address still applies when performing your own searches.
