Restoration company looking to contract in Texas?

TexasRight to Lien

We are a restoration company looking to go to Texas. We are wondering what documents would need to be signed and what the collection process would be.

The answer depends on the nature of projects and work that you seek. The mechanic's lien process is different between residential and commercial projects. Chapter 53 of the Texas Property Code governs the filing of mechanic's liens, which you can review at the following link: http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/PR/htm/PR.53.htm Retain a construction attorney to review your situation and to develop good binding contracts. Good luck.

The documents that need to be signed are the regular contracts. The collection process is that same as you would have anywhere else.

Pay very close attention to your lien deadlines. Here, we do not do lien notices before beginning projects. A careful rule of thumb: If you have not been paid within 30 days of your last invoice, contact someone who is familiary with Chapter 53 of the Texas Property Code.
