When a home or business owner decides to remodel their property many problems can occur. For example, the remodel may have been done wrong and the owner does not want to pay for the work done, the owner may have run out of funding, and the contractor may have left the project without paying the subcontractors. These types of issues may result in the need for a mechanic’s lien to be placed on the property. A mechanic’s lien is a security interest in the title of the property for the benefit of those who supplied material and labor for the property’s improvement. Mechanic’s liens are recorded and may cause problems when the homeowner decides to sell their property.
