Mechanic’s Lien Rights

Of particular interest to property owners, contractors and subcontractors is the availability of mechanic’s lien rights. A person who contributes to the improvement of real estate by performing labor or providing materials for a wide range of improvements is entitled to put a lien on the real estate so improved. To perfect the lien, however, the lien claimant must strictly comply with statutory notice, filing, service and foreclosure requirements. Once perfected, the lien provides the claimant with an effective means of obtaining full or partial payment for the labor or material that contributed to improvement of the real estate. Attorney’s fees and costs are also often recoverable.
