Covering the methods of preparing, filing and enforcing mechanic's liens on both public and private works construction, this practice guide addresses pleadings in an action to foreclose the private or public lien, the construction trust, and more.
The nature of construction work often leads to disagreements and resultant delays. These delays in construction can mean that a contractor won't be paid right away or, worse, at all. Mechanic's liens are intended to protect the interest of a contractor or supplier. A property owner will see the filing of a mechanic's lien as a nuisance and, implicitly, as a threat. A thorough understanding of mechanic's liens is crucial, whether you represent the construction industry or a property owner.
Numerous practice guides and forms commonly used in connection with Lien Law procedures are provided, making Mechanic's Liens an invaluable reference for all attorneys who practice in this field. Mechanic's Liens also includes a set of Downloadable Forms. The 2022-2023 release is current through the 2022 legislative session.
