I was contracted by the business owner to make modifications inside his rented space. The business owner made it clear upon completion of work that he would not be paying. I went through the small claims process and a judgement was determined in my favor, but he still has no intent to pay. Prior to small claims I reached out to the property management team to inform them of my intent to place a lien and they responded with a threat to sue if we proceeded with a lien stating that, without a contract with the property owner, I have no right for a lien. If a mechanic lien is my right as a contractor, and the work was contracted with the proper business owner, do I really have no right to place a lien? Or is this incorrect?
