Construction Liens

Missouri Construction Lien Attorney

Types of Construction Liens

Construction attorney Kevin J. Dolley helps contractors and construction companies file and enforce many different types of construction liens. Generally, the most used lien in construction is the mechanics' lien . However, many other types of liens exist. Some examples are:

·         Architects,' engineers,' landscape architects' and surveyors' liens

·         Landscape contractors' and suppliers' liens

·         Demolition contractors' liens

·         Commercial real estate brokers' liens

·         Liens on leased or licensed property

Why Construction Liens are Important

Construction liens are important because they ensure payment for services that add value to someone else's property. Similar to the way a bank can repossess a car when payments are not made, a construction lien allows a contractor to take partial ownership in improved property if he does not receive compensation. Then the owner of the improved property can be forced to pay the unpaid contractor or face a court order demanding sale of the property. The contractor is then compensated with proceeds from the sale of the property. This process is effective. However, the courts demand that the procedures be followed meticulously. If they are not, courts have been known to void the lien, even if the misapplied procedures do not prejudice the other party.
