Construction Liens

Construction Lien:  (Mechanics Lien) To put it simply, a construction lien is an instrument to ensure contractors and suppliers get paid for the work they have completed. A construction lien is a document that is served and filed with a county to hold a security interest in a real property for unpaid bills arising from a construction project or other form of work of improvement. The creditor - contractor or supplier - has the right to file a lien on the property if the bill is not paid within a specified period of time. The lien will "cloud" the property title and make it difficult for the owner to sell or refinance until the lien has been satisfied.  If the contractor or supplier is still not paid after filing the lien, in order to obtain the amount owed, they can enforce the lien by filing a lawsuit to foreclose on the property.
