We have been trying to get paid for a year plus and i am wondering how we can foreclose on the lien?
You've asked how to foreclose a Mechanics Lien.
The Short Answer is that you must foreclose your mechanics lien in Court.
The Longer Answer is that there are a number of steps you must go through to make sure you can foreclose. Even then, there are a number of hurdles that can prevent you from being able to foreclose.
Overall, foreclosing a mechanics lien is full of traps for the unwary. I recommend sitting down with a knowledgable Construction lawyer before you proceed.
I hope this information was helpful. Best of luck!
