About Illinois Subcontractors Mechanics Lien Form

Those who provide labor and/or materials to a construction project may be entitled to file a mechanics lien against the property if unpaid. In Illinois, the form that must be used to file a mechanics lien depends on whether the claimant contracted directly with the property owner, or not. This form can be used by parties who did not contract directly with the property owner, such as subcontractors and suppliers. (For others, check out the Illinois Mechanics Lien If You Contracted With a Tenant Form and Illinois General Contractor’s Mechanics Lien Form.)
