What is a Utah construction lien claim?

Utah mechanics lien law statutes provide broad mechanics' lien rights to contractors, subcontractors, and all persons performing any services or furnishing or renting any materials or equipment, including licensed architects and engineers who have rendered professional services on a project. Lien rights are a great benefit for those who completed private and government projects and have not been paid. All persons who have a direct contract with a project owner are deemed to be “general contractors” and all others are deemed to be “subcontractors”. Material supplies are entitled to liens, and projects by contractors subcontractors are also lienable. A Utah mechanics lien filed with regard to work performed on a privately owned property will attach to and encumber the fee simple ownership of the property. The strong protections provided by Utah's construction lien law is notable: in Utah, the right to file a construction lien can not be waived or limited by contract. A provision of a contract purporting to waive or limit construction lien rights is void. But at the same time, the lien law must be strictly adhered to: any failure to comply with the requirements may result in the loss of lien rights. One of the most important requirements is that notice of a lien filing be given to the property owner or owner's company promptly after recording.
