I'm very sorry to hear about that. First, while some type of lien or encumbrance might be available, this does not sound like the type of situation that'd give rise to mechanics lien rights. A mechanics lien creates a security interest in the underlying real estate when a party has performed construction work at that property and gone unpaid. Other liens and encumbrances exist - such as, potentially, a lien against a vehicle - but that's a little bit outside of our expertise at the Construction Legal Center. Of course, there are some other online resources that might be able to answer your question - such as avvo.com. Avvo has lawyers available from all different practice areas to answer questions on a number of different topics. Good luck!
