After living on the property for two months, I located a small utility trailer in the backyard, registered to the brother of the foreclosed on man. Can I place a mechanics lien on it for storage cost?

While you may be entitled to a lien over the materials for storage, a mechanics lien is probably not in order. Mechanics liens secure payment for those who perform construction labor, services, and materials. For more information about potential claims, try avvo.com - they have lawyers from all different practices (rather than just construction) available to answer legal questions.
