Construction Liens

Construction Liens are claims against property used by contractors and suppliers in the area of construction, repairs or alterations of buildings. The Construction Lien process is necessary, because in this area of business, it is impossible to take back work and materials that have been delivered or used in the process. Registering a lien prevents the owner from mortgaging or selling the property without dealing with the lien claimant. Often simply registering the lien will prompt payment.
