What types of business entities can file mechanics’ liens?

7 months ago


A quick question. Can a subcontractor file a mechanics’ lien (or enforce a mechanics’ lien) against a property if the business isn’t properly registered with the Secretary of State to do business in that jurisdiction? In this case, Massachusetts is our jurisdiction.

Thank you!

You can record a lien.  You just have to be careful about putting it in the correct name.
