File and Enforce a Builder’s Lien
When you work in the construction industry, you are constantly dealing with different contracts and agreements. It is important to have a lawyer that understands the builder’s lien act and can help you get paid what you are owed. If you are not familiar with the builder’s lien act, it is a piece of legislation that allows contractors to place a lien on a property if they are not paid for their work. This lien gives the contractor a legal claim to the property and allows them to collect their money through the courts if necessary.
The Builder’s Lien Act Protects You
The builder’s lien act can be a useful tool for contractors working in the construction industry who are owed money, but it is important to understand how it works before you try to use it. We have decades of experience helping construction contractors collect what they are owed by enforcing builders’ lien claims. Our lawyers help you navigate the process of filing a lien and collecting money owed to you. You have only one year to file this court claim from the date your lien was filed.
