Georgia’s Mechanic Lien Guide

In Georgia , liens filed on private property or on funds relating to a public project are known as Mechanic’s Liens. When a Georgia mechanics lien is filed with regard to work performed on privately owned property, it attaches to and encumbers the fee simple ownership of property.

Contractors, as well as subcontractors, design professionals, sub-subcontractors and material suppliers can file a Georgia construction lien.

If the owner files a “Notice of Commencement” and posts it at the project site, then all those who are not performing work directly for the owner or prime contractor must, within 30 days from the initial delivery of labor services or materials to the project by claimant, provide a “Notice to Contractor”.

The filing of a Georgia claim of lien must be filed within 90 days after the day on which the lien claimant last performed labor or furnished materials.
