Good morning, The lien relates to certain rights you can exercise if you don't get paid. If you want to foreclose on the lien, you would have to file a lien foreclosure lawsuit in Colorado district court. This is a complicated and expensive process and unless the amount due is in the upper five figures or higher, filing a foreclosure suit likely is too complicated and time-consuming. If the amount due is under $7500, file a lawsuit under small claims and then try to collect. If less than $25,000, consider county court. If above $25,000, then it must be filed in district court. The best next step is to hire an attorney and they can make a demand and that could work.

To enforce the lien, the claimant must file a timely and properly file a judicial foreclosure action. Foreclosure results in the sale of the property and the distribution of sale proceeds to satisfy any liens on the property. This is a very complicated process and is not something that can be done properly without an attorney which is why this is rarely done unless the amount of the lien is considerable, meaning in the upper five figures or more.

You are free to make the demand yourself.
