A mechanic's lien (called a "materialman's lien" in some states) is a tool for those who do work to improve real property. The lien is used to ensure payment for services and materials. The lien attaches to the property when the work is done, or the materials delivered, and remains attached to the property until payment is made. If the property owner does not pay for the services or materials, the person who performed the work or sold the materials may initiate a court proceeding to enforce the lien. That proceeding could require a sale of the property to pay for the services and materials. Expert legal counsel can help you through mechanic's lien issues, and can help protect your property in the event of a lien proceeding.
