California Mechanic’s Lien | Construction Lien Lawyer
Establishing a mechanic’s lien or stop notice against a customer’s property for non-payment or other dispute can be an effective method of enforcing contractual rights on a public or private project. Most contractors do not clearly understand the hoops they must jump through to perfect the mechanic’s lien. From the 20-day preliminary notice to a property owner, lender and another contractor, to filing a post-lien lawsuit in order to keep the lien valid, The Mellor Law Firm guides contractors and design professionals through the maze of requirements for mechanic’s liens.
Our mission is to help you ensure a mechanic’s or materialman’s lien does the job it was intended to: help you get paid on a project. If you need assistance starting or maintaining a mechanic’s lien, contact us today. Our experienced contraction law attorney can make a difference in the outcome of your dispute.
Contractors and Mechanic’s Liens/Stop Notices
While a primary and effective tool for enforcing payment, a mechanic’s lien can be removed if the complex rules and time lines are not followed carefully. We can help ensure the mechanic’s lien process on a private or public project is done correctly to prevent its removal. Even if you are a subcontractor, we will help you properly record and maintain the lien’s validity. In breach of contract and other contractor construction litigation, non-compliance with lien recording is not the only option for recovering what is owed to you. We can explore other alternatives to help you get paid.
Mechanic’s Liens/Stop Notices and Design Professionals
Whether a design has been implemented or not we can assist architects and design engineers in recording liens on a project. When properly executed, a design professional’s lien can effectively prevent projects from moving forward until reasonable payment has been arranged or received.
