Using Construction Liens To Remedy Nonpayment
Construction liens protect the rights of owners, contractors and other parties involved in the construction process. Any of these parties may file a lien against any other party involved in the construction project. Construction issues that often result in filing a lien include:
- Failure to pay for services
- Failure to pay for materials
- Failure to deliver services
- Poor workmanship

Help Removing Construction Liens
Liens on properties are often not discovered until a title search is done at the time of sale. The complex nature of lien filings makes it difficult to negotiate their removal and get title insurance. Even if a lien is invalid, title companies will refuse to insure the title.
Construction liens typically fall into one of four categories:
- Invalid mechanic’s liens
- Judgment liens
- Child support liens
- Fraudulent liens
Requesting a full release from the lien holder is the best way to get a lien removed, but additional steps are often necessary. If the lien holder refuses to sign a release, there are both judicial and nonjudicial ways to move forward. When mediation and other nonjudicial solutions are not successful, we draft a formal demand and present it to the creditor. If the creditor refuses to execute a release, we take the case to court.
