That's an interesting question. Generally, when property is owned by the federal government, that property cannot be liened. On federal projects, namely - large ones, recovery via bond claim pursuant to the Miller Act is generally more appropriate. But, if its a residential property and the federal government is somehow involved, a mechanics lien claim might still be possible.

I hope that was relatively helpful! If you've got more details and would like to follow up with another question, feel free to post another one here at the Ask an Expert Center! We'll help however we can.

In the meantime, here's some background information on Ohio's mechanics lien rules: Ohio Mechanics Lien Overview
