Contractors, subcontractors, laborers, and other workers who provide materials, labor or equipment to the construction, remodeling, or repair of a property may be able to protect themselves by attaching a lien to the property. When properly filed, a mechanic’s lien is an effective means of ensuring payment for any party that has contributed to the development of a real estate project. If a property owner does not pay for the materials or service rendered, the lien holder can seek to sell the property to cover the amount due.
However, Indiana’s mechanic’s lien statutes are complex. Working with a lawyer who understands the intricacies of mechanic’s liens and how to properly pursue enforcement of a lien is essential to successfully recovering what you are owed for unpaid work.
It is important to act promptly when filing a mechanic’s lien. Indiana law establishes tight timelines and strict notification requirements in which a lien holder must act to preserve his or her rights. Delay can result in the complete loss of a legal remedy.
