The Mechanic’s Liens practice guide has been
updated and redesigned and is now part of the New York
Lawyers’ Practical Skills Series. The 2012-2013 release
is current through the 2012 New York legislative session. 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. Written by George Foster Mackey,
Esq., and Norman D. Alvy, Esq., this practice guide is even more
valuable with the inclusion of Forms on CD.
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.
Discussion of the amendments to Lien Law sections 19(4) and 21(5),
which completely overhaul the procedure for “bonding off”
the lien for public and private liens, is included along with updates to
case and statutory law.
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.
