I'm very sorry to hear that. First, because a mechanics lien represents such a drastic remedy, sending a mere threat of lien is often enough to compel payment. This is true regardless of whether a mechanics lien is ultimately an option moving forward. You can learn more about that idea here: Notice Of Intent To Lien May Be Enough To Get You Paid. Plus, you can download a free copy of the form here: Massachusetts Notice of Intent to Lien Form. Further, other threats - such as threatening to file suit for breach of contract or claims under prompt payment laws could be effective. When sent via an attorney, the threat of suit may carry a little more weight. Finally, this article may be helpful: Can't File a Mechanics Lien? Other Options for Recovery. As far as an individual debt collection agency operating in Massachusetts, I'm afraid I'm not all that familiar with any Massachusetts debt collection agencies. However, the Consumer Affairs research team published this article which may be helpful: Best Debt Collection Agencies. Good luck getting paid!
