In order to ensure that a contractor is properly protected for payment of construction costs by a property owner, it is essential to correctly file a construction lien for work performed. If a property owner wishes to protect property from having liens filed against it, it is important to correctly obtain lien releases. Our firm is experienced in assisting owners, architects, contractors, subcontractors, banks, builders, and other individuals with ensuring that a notice to owner, notice to contractor, notice of nonpayment, or construction lien is properly filed, and sums due and owing are appropriately determined.
