I placed a mechanical lien to a property. The lien was discharged by bond. I need to claim the bond.
In this situation, you still generally would need to file a lawsuit in court to "foreclose" the lien. Therefore, your avenue to recovery is very similar to what you would have to do had the lien not been bonded. The bond just removes the lien as an encumbrance on the physical property and does not materially change the procedure you need to follow to seek payment.
