Understanding Mechanic’s Liens: How They Arise

A mechanic’s lien constitutes a legal lien against a residence or other real property and is commonly utilized by contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers (including materials suppliers and certain service providers) who have not received payment for work performed on real property and enhancements made to real property. This mechanism serves as a means to pursue compensation for remodeling or construction work carried out on real property (commercial real estate or even a residence). Even if you are not the one who failed to make the payment, you may still encounter a mechanic’s lien. For instance, if you had your office or kitchen remodeled and the general contractor did not make payment to the material supplier who provided the material that went into the project, the material supplier has the authority to place a lien on your property in an attempt to recover the owed funds. A surprising aspect is that in cases where a subcontractor or supplier remains unpaid by the general contractor, the law allows them to pursue you and the improved real property, often commercial real estate or a residence. Therefore, comprehending the workings of mechanic’s liens and adopting preventive measures is crucial.
