One has to file suit to foreclose the lien and name as defendants every person or entity that has an interest in the subject property.

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!
