Earlier this year, the Missouri legislature approved some fairly significant changes to the mechanics lien laws in Missouri. We summarized those changes back in May, and posted a reminder to folks just last week as the new laws took effect August 31st (see all posts related to Missouri Lien Laws here).
Well, in doing some additional searching on the topic, I ran across a summary by Missouri attorney John Meyer, of Capes Sokol. I normally don’t post a link to each and every lien law article I find (because I find a lot of them), but John has done a really great job of summarizing the important changes. (read here).
While we’re pointing to resources on Missouri mechanic lien laws, here are a few other places online with great information for consumers and contractors on the Missouri mechanic lien and preliminary notice regulations:
