Mechanics Lien

A Mechanics' Lien is an effective remedy for contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers and others involved in the construction or improvement of real estate to resolve payment disputes. If a labor or material provider records a Mechanics' Lien against the subject real estate, the owner may be unable to sell or refinance the property without first paying off the debt secured by the lien. A Mechanics' Lien can therefore trigger payment to the lien claimant. However, because a Contractors Lien is one of the few involuntary liens permitted on real estate, the requirements to claim a lien are complex and technical. Experience and knowledge of Illinois Mechanics Lien Law is critical to enforcing your rights and attaining the best possible results.
