I’m a little unsure of what you are specifically asking without more context. But I assume you are referring to what type of work or performance grants mechanics lien protection in Vermont.

Vermont offers a wide scope of mechanics lien protection. The parties and type of work covered by mechanics liens is regulated by 9 V.S.A. §1921. This states that “When a contract or agreement is made, whether in writing or not, for erecting, repairing, moving, or altering improvements to real property or furnishing labor or materials therefor, the person… shall have a lien on such improvements and the lot of land.”

This is broad protection for anyone who provided labor or materials to a construction project, regardless of which tier they contracted (i.e. subs, sub-subs, suppliers to subs, etc.). The only thing that’s unclear is whether design professionals such as architects or engineers have lien rights.
