Construction Lien Issues
A construction lien is a legal claim for payment that can be filed by a contractor against a property on which the contractor performed work. A construction lien is typically filed in situations where the property owner has not paid the general contractor, or the general has not paid one or more subcontractors. Construction liens are sometimes referred to as mechanic liens.
Construction liens protect professionals from the risk of not receiving payment when a service has been performed. If a contractor files a lien, it can create various obstacles for the property owner, and can even result in a foreclosure against the property. If you have had a lien filed against your property, and believe that this should not have happened, you should seek the help of an attorney.
