What are your rights and responsibilities with a mechanic’s lien?
Renovations can increase the value of your home, but can come with a steep price tag if your contractor fails to pay a subcontractor. Plus, if a lien is filed against your home, you won’t be able to sell or refinance your mortgage until it is removed. On the flip side, if you’re a contractor filing a mechanic’s lien, you must follow the correct legal procedure carefully, so that you can pursue the payment owed to you. If you don’t, your request could be denied, and you might have to pay the homeowner’s legal fees. No matter which side you’re on, Robinson & Henry’s experienced attorneys can guide you.
