Mechanics Lien California
Contractors, subcontractors, and property owners could all potentially encounter issues with mechanics liens. A mechanics lien places an encumbrance on the title of a property that is receiving improvements. With a mechanics lien in place, if the contractor, subcontractor, or materials supplier isn’t paid, the property could be forced into foreclosure to discharge those debts. However, as with many disputes, the timing of the steps necessary to be successful with a lien, or avoiding a lien, is crucial. Failing to meet just one of the many deadlines could result in a loss.
For property owners who are building or improving real estate, you may find yourself in a position where contract disputes and non-payment between contractors and subcontractors could invoke issues with a mechanics lien on your property.
