Ohio liens filed on private property or on funds relating to a public project are known as Ohio mechanic's liens. If an Ohio mechanics lien is filed with regard to work performed on privately owned property, it attaches to and encumbers the fee simple ownership of property, using that property as collateral for the overdue payment. If an Ohio mechanics lien is filed with regard to work performed on a public or government owned property, that lien instead secures the amount due the lienor by attaching to the fund of money which the public agency has allocated for a project. The reason for this is that in Ohio you cannot force the sale of publicly owned land (public agencies mean any county, city, town, township, public commission, public board or other municipality authorized by law to make contracts for the making of any public improvement in any city, town, township or other municipality).
