Filing And Removing Mechanic’s Liens

Construction readiness and construction law knowledge go hand in hand. As a contractor engaged in building projects, you must protect your right to proper compensation for your labor. You no doubt invest a great deal in preparedness to do quality work, well in advance of receipt of payments. You hire laborers, rent or buy equipment, bring supplies to the building site and otherwise get ready to complete construction projects according to specifications.

What happens, then, when a general contractor or property developer fails to ensure that you are paid enough and on time? You may need to file a mechanic’s lien against a property when you have not received proper payment for your work. A mechanic’s lien can serve as leverage to ensure that you are paid before the property changes hands. Terry Jessop & Bitner in Salt Lake City can help you take the steps necessary to protect your right to correct payment for a job well done.
