Mechanic’s Lien

In Minnesota, workman and material suppliers may have the right to file a lien against your home if you do not pay them for work.  The right is governed by statute with a number of steps that need to be followed to make sure the lien is valid.  We have represented both contractors who have not been paid for work and property owners who may be subject to lien claims so are very familiar with the ins and outs of these types of claims.  The take away today is that a lien claimant must serve and record their lien within 120 days after their last date of work and begin to foreclose their lien within 1 year of their last date of work.  Every situation is unique, so do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions about mechanic’s liens.
