I am an independent contractor in Colorado and Wyoming. I am hired by a subcontractor. Do I have lien rights?

Sub-subcontractors (i.e. an independent contractor hired by a subcontractor) will generally be entitled to mechanics lien rights in both Colorado and Wyoming as long as they’re providing some permanent improvement to the project property. Both states are quite expansive in providing mechanics lien rights to a number of parties on a construction job.

For further discussion on lien rights in these states, here are some great resources:
