Mechanic’s Liens – Filing liens, foreclosing liens, defending property from fraudulent liens
As a subset of construction law, mechanic’s liens are complicated creatures created by Colorado law. Timelines are often short, and your rights to be able to assert a lien on someone’s property can be affected by sloppy work.
Even so, mechanic’s liens are widely used in Colorado as an effective way to ensure that a contractor, subcontractor, or material provider is paid for their work.
If you have the need to file a mechanic’s lien, you should contact Dan Slater as soon as possible to preserve your rights. Dan can look at your situation and work with the other contractors involved, as well as any bond companies, to resolve your payment.
From a general contractor / developer / property owner perspective, though, the mechanic’s lien law can sometimes be abused. In those cases, Dan can help you best defend your property or contract from abusive lien claimants.
