Mechanics Lien Law


A mechanics lien is a powerful tool because it uses property to secure payment for the reasonable value of the labor, material, or equipment provided. However, a mechanics lien is only enforceable if the requirements to properly establish the mechanics lien have been met.  And proper deadlines for recording and filing a lawsuit to foreclose the mechanics lien must be strictly adhered to.
