Key Benefits:
• Learn to prepare, file and enforce a mechanic's lien on behalf of a contractor or supplier who has not been paid for construction work performed.
• Know how to protect the interests of a property owner through substituting other security, or by learning how to defend against or vacate liens.
• Understand the difference between public and private mechanic's liens.

Product Description:
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.

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.

Key among these additions is SKANSKA USA Building Inc., which is the first known decision interpeting a Lien Law provision that provides for certain payment bond protection. Until now, this provision has not been discussed often by the courts and has not been well publicized by government agencies. Discussion of this and other recent cases and their effect on the practice of mechanic's liens law has been added.

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. Mechanic's Liens also includes a set of Downloadable Forms. The 2017-2018 release is current through the 2017 legislative session.
