Contractors, Subcontractors, Material Suppliers
If you are a contractor, the mechanics lien is the closest thing you have to a guarantee you’ll be paid. Obviously, you must have a written contract, and it will contain language that specifies the amount you will be paid for your work. But, if the owner of the project fails to pay you, unless you have perfected a mechanic’s lien, it could take years for you to go through the legal system to obtain a judgment and then collect on the judgment. The mechanic’s lien does wonders to shorten that process. A valid mechanic’s lien clouds the title of the owners’ property, and will usually cause the owner to negotiate your bill in a hurry. The key is exactly following each step of the process. The entire process is technical and must be done within a specific time frame or you will lose your valuable rights. Many contractors do it themselves. If you are new to contracting, or don’t feel comfortable handling the process yourself, let the lawyers at The Law Office of Richard L. Boyer, assist you. We can even provide the tools for you to handle these liens yourself after you have some experience.
If you are the homeowner or property owner where construction work is being performed, you should also be familiar with the mechanic’s lien process, know which contractors and materialmen need them, and what to do if you are served with a Preliminary Lien Notice, Stop Notice, or Mechanic’s Lien. More importantly, you should know how to avoid such liens in the first place. Let us “look over your shoulder” during your construction project to help keep you out of trouble and avoid payment disputes between yourself, the general contractor, subcontractors, and materialmen. Too often, lawyers only get called when the property owner has paid the general contractor, and then finds out a subcontractor or materialman has recorded a lien, claiming he or she was not paid. Give us a call at the beginning of a project. It will be money well-spent if we can help you get through your project without a lien on your property.Mechanic's Lien Attorney for Property Lien, Lien Mechanics, Release Of Lien, Materialman's Lien, Stop Notices and More
