What is a Construction Lien?
A construction lien is a retention of property or interest to insure payment of a debt or other obligation.
A lien is placed on the owner of the property and benefits the person who placed it, called the “lien holder”.
The lien is retained until the debt has been paid, once an agreement is arrived at and paid, the lien is removed.
It doesn’t matter if you rendered services without a written contract, the law protects oral contracts.
If you’re a contractor and you have not been paid for your services or supplies, you have the right to place a lien against the property on which you’ve worked.
Don’t let more than 30 days go by after you complete the work or you may not be able to place a lien. Call Attorney Javier Marcos for a free consultation 713.999.4444.
