I have a commissary where food trucks clean and park their vehicles for a daily or monthly rate.

Texas

I have a food truck that has been parked on my property for over 2 years and have not received payment. Can I file a mechanics lien or do I just need to have it towed? I'd like to get payment or take some sort of possession on it for non payment. What is my best option to get paid?

That's an interesting question. First, I should note that when we discuss mechanics liens on the Expert Center, we're referring to mechanics liens in the construction industry. When those who perform construction-related work go unpaid, they are generally entitled to a mechanics lien against the property that's been improved. While liens against vehicles are often an available remedy, they're a bit outside our area of expertise. It's confusing vernacular, I know.

However, if you'd like to put a lien on this vehicle, there are some online resources that can help: (1) How to File a Mechanics Lien on a Vehicle Title; and (2) Add or Remove a Lien on a Vehicle (TX DMV). Further, if you have additional questions about your rights and the ability to file a lien, Avvo.com and JustAnswer.com both provide the ability to ask legal questions and receive answers from experts on a broad variety of subjects.
