Mechanics Liens and Foreclosures
To file and enforce a mechanics lien in Minnesota, there is a very specific process that must be followed. If performed incorrectly, you could lose your lien rights and make collecting more difficult. A mechanics lien foreclosure action can be an expensive route, so contactors need to weigh the costs and benefits while considering other effective collection options. At MNCLS, we help you understand the process as well as your available options so you can make an informed decision.
We will review where your case stands in the process as well as deadline dates to determine if your lien rights still exist. From there, we can lead you through the entire process or decide on an alternative option.
By itself, a mechanics lien has limited ability to force a debtor to pay. Mechanics liens are often a very time-consuming and expensive solution, therefore we examine how profitable the process will be based on your situation. We can help you evaluate the costs and benefits of using a mechanics lien in comparison to other collection options.
The short answer is yes. Any contributor of labor or materials has a right to record a mechanics lien if they are not paid. We will review the reasons for which the payment is not being made as well as the process the subcontractor followed to determine if the mechanics lien the subcontractor recorded is enforceable. Depending on the conclusion, MNCLS will help resolve the dispute.
