What is a Colorado mechanics' lien Claim?

A Colorado mechanics lien is a document that is filed with a local clerk's office to notify owners and potential owners of a specific property that someone is owed money for work they performed or materials they provided on a construction project. Mechanics liens in Colorado attach to the property, and, similar to a mortgage, encumber the property, making it difficult to sell, transfer or obtain financing until the mechanics lien is removed. The filing of mechanic’s liens in Colorado are a result of statutes enacted by the Colorado legislature: Colorado lien laws (C.R.S. §38-22-101 et. seq. (“Lien Statute”)). Since the Colorado mechanics lien law is a statutory creation, it is strictly construed by the court, which means that the requirements of the law must be followed to ensure the mechanics lien will be valid.

In Colorado, liens filed on private property or on funds relating to a public project are known as Mechanic's Liens. When a lien is filed with regard to work performed on privately owned property, it attaches to and encumbers the fee simple ownership of property. Liens filed with regard to public projects attach to the funds held by the public owner.
