This must be a frustrating situation.

Mechanics liens are specifically available and limited to protecting construction participants' right to be paid for labor or materials furnished to improve property. Because mechanics liens are set forth by statute, and are involuntary security interests, there are specific rules and situations that limit their availability. If the lien does not arise out of non-payment related to work done to improve the property, a mechanics lien is not the correct remedy.

There are, however, other types of liens or paths to get what is owed in other situations. To the extent that a judgment has been or can be obtained against a party, a judgment lien can be an option to secure the amount due.
