entering into a contract to design a hotel. need to know if I would have lien rights
Jan 26, 2018
In Iowa, whether architects are entitled to lien rights at all can be a bit of a grey area, as they are not mentioned specifically in the lien statute. However, through prior case law, it appears that if the property is not actually improved, an architect will not have mechanics lien rights in Iowa. Of course, other modes of recovery (such as litigation) will still be available to recover amounts for unpaid work.
