What is an Indiana mechanics' lien Claim?

At its core, a mechanics lien is protection for unpaid amounts due and owing to contractors, subcontractors and suppliers that performed work or delivered materials to construction projects. The purpose of the Indiana mechanics lien statutes is to ensure that improvements to real estate are paid for, either through the normal course of progress payments or through the sale of the real estate itself. When a lien is filed on a property, the property itself becomes subject to sale by the lienor, who is then paid out of the proceeds. To avoid this, most owners will attempt to resolve the construction lien, thereby avoiding an inevitable lawsuit to foreclose on the property. In Indiana, liens filed on private property or on funds relating to a public project are known as Mechanic's Liens. When an Indiana construction lien is filed with regard to work performed on privately owned property, it attaches to and encumbers the fee simple ownership of property. Indiana mechanics liens filed with regard to public projects attach to the funds held by the public owner.
