Mechanic lien

South DakotaMechanics Lien

I lived in a home owned by my mother, a verbal agreement that the house is mine and I would buy it from her. We decided to sell but only after I completed a ton of work and landscaping and driveway work to improve the value. I found the buyer and we accepted thee offer. Now mom won’t agree to share proceeds and I’m out with nothing. I filed a mechanical lien due for all I put into the house. She continues too harass me about getting out before it closes. She told me today that -the lien isn’t my (her) concern. I’m just asking for what I put into the house and the labor average for this work totaled $14g. Did I do the wrong thing and what are the chances I will get paid back?
