Liens and Bond Claims
A mechanics lien is a powerful tool available to those who perform work or supply labor/materials for a living to ensure you are paid. If you have performed work/supplied materials and have not been paid, you are entitled to a lien on the property where the job took place in the amount that you are owed. However, making sure you are eligible for a mechanics lien is a tricky process.
The notice requirements in Texas for filing and perfecting a mechanic’s lien are notoriously complicated. Understanding whether you comply with the Texas Government Code, Texas Property Code, Texas Constitution, or a combination of the three, depends on your status as a contractor. The attorneys at MPP are experienced at navigating the myriad of requirements contained in Chapter 53 of the Texas Property Code to ensure your mechanic’s lien meets these requirements.
