Construction Liens, Mechanics’ Liens and Materialmen’s Liens are statutory procedures designed to protect certain classes of people who provide goods, labor or services that improve property. Although intended to ensure prompt and complete payment of the contract price, the fact that a lien has been filed typically means a dispute has occurred concerning the performance or quality of the contract and whether the lien claimant is even entitled to payment for the contact.
In order to perfect lien rights, the filing of a lien must follow a strict procedure that is extremely time sensitive. Property owners may also take action before a project begins to protect their property interests from lien claimants and they can also take certain action once a lien is filed to force a resolution of the lien and to protect the landowner’s property interest.
