Mechanics LienWhat is a mechanics lien?

A lien is an encumbrance on one person's property to secure a debt the property owner owes to another person.  The statement that someone's property is "tied up" describes the effect of mechanics liens on real estate.  Lien is a French word meaning "knot or binding" that was brought to Britain with the French language during the Middle Ages, making its way to the United States in its formative years.  All 50 States now have Statutes permitting the filing of mechanics liens on real property.

What does a mechanics lien do for me?

In the modern sense, a mechanic's lien is a security interest in the title to property for the benefit of those who have supplied labor or materials that improve the property. It is similar to a mortgage in that the property usually cannot be sold unless without the mechanics lien being addressed.

On what type of property can a mechanics be filed?
 
Mechanics liens can be placed on real property, or land and buildings.  Mechanics liens are referred to by various names, including,  construction lien, materialman's lien or supplier's lien when referring to those supplying materials, a laborer's lien when referring to those supplying labor, and a design professional's lien when referring to architects or designers who contribute to a work of improvement.

What is the benefit of filing a mechanics lien?
