The contract between an owner and the prime contractor is the instrument which gives parties the right to lien. It is unique to the construction industry. Lienguard stresses to our clients the importance of obtaining information at the inception of a sale.  A mechanic’s lien is a statutory lien and was established to protect laborers and mechanics who worked to improve real estate. It was further extended to cover parties who provide materials for the construction or improvement of real estate. The labor and/or materials cannot be repossessed or returned to the supplying party and, therefore, an interest (lien) in the property is granted to the amount of the debt. Lienable products, services, and labor are defined by each individual state’s statutes. Many states have allowances for liens in the use of machinery, services, and other types of products or labor. It is important to check to see if your products or services qualify to have a lien filed.


Many private jobs and most municipal jobs are bonded. There are differing time restrictions applicable to filing a preliminary bond notice and a claim against the bond. This is outlined in the Lienguard reference booklet.  Terminology on a bond is critical and should be checked to ensure that all subcontractors and material suppliers are covered.  We strongly recommend obtaining a copy of the bond.


There are states which allow the filing of a lien on available funds on a municipal project.   This is where the lien is put against the Monies Owed, not real estate.   These funds are withheld from payment to the general contractor, and time parameters exist for this type of lien. Debt Collection and or Litigation may become necessary to collect.


If payment is not received after the filing of a lien or a bond claim, and you have exhausted all amicable methods to collect, Debt Collection and or Litigation is the next step. You must retain counsel to file a suit.  Ask us about our National Attorney Network.


We have tried to condense these requirements for convenience, but due to the technical nature of this process, use the information strictly as a general reference. We hope the information is helpful to you, but again we stress consulting state statutes for specifics.
