AHC attorneys have extensive experience in asserting and defending against construction liens. Liens are a critical aspect of construction law and can have significant consequences for every project participant.
From an owner’s perspective, liens can be burdensome impediments to obtaining clear title and transferring or selling property. Our attorneys have invalidated lien claims against our clients’ property by understanding where lienholders tend to make mistakes when enforcing their lien rights. We also assist with bonding off liens and defending our clients and their sureties in the resulting bond claims.
From the viewpoint of contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers, liens are essential tools for recovering payment due. But failing to strictly follow lien laws will result in a loss of lien rights. It is therefore critical for a claim of lien to be property drafted, with all required information, and properly filed within applicable deadlines, which may change depending on the circumstances. Our attorneys have successfully maintained lien actions and lien foreclosure actions to ensure our clients are paid for the work they perform on a project.
Whether you are an owner, contractor, subcontractor, or supplier, our attorneys have the knowledge and expertise to navigate the complexity of lien laws to ensure that your rights are protected.
