If you are a subcontractor or you provide materials for a construction project, you may have the right to make a claim against the general contractor and/or the owner if you are not paid as agreed. When you provide work or materials work for a construction project in good faith you expect that you will be paid in accordance with your contract. If you don’t get paid, you have every right to demand payment. A mechanic’s lien is one of the tools at your disposal to enforce you right to payment.
A mechanic's lien imposes a burden on the property and can prevent the property from being bought or sold until the mechanic's lien is satisfied. A mechanic's lien may also prevent the owner from obtaining additional financing until you are paid.
The right to assert a mechanic’s lien is provided by statute and by the Texas constitution. The procedure for asserting a mechanic’s lien can be complicated. At The Law Office Of Stephen O’Rear, P.C. we can explain your rights and assist you in going through the steps necessary to assert a mechanic's lien.
Under Texas law there is a limitation on the amount of time to protect your right to assert a mechanic’s lien, so call today for a free consultation to discuss your rights.
