We are an Architecture Firm which provided professional services for a Client in Indiana. Per that State law, we filed a mechanic’s lien on them because they paid the retainer and no monies since. We understand the Mechanic’s Lien is only effective for 1-year in Indiana and we have been advised to Foreclose on the Client as they are the building owner for the structure which was the subject of our services. A few questions: 1. Is it true the Lien expires? In our case, 1-year would be November 2021. 2. Should we re-new the Lien or pursue Foreclosure? 3. What are the fees and timeline associated with Foreclosing on a Client? ...Read More

My husband owns and operators his own private construction business. He completed a job approx 2 yrs ago and the customer continues to refuse to pay in full. I am not sure of how to explain all the in's and out's, but Im sure there was a falling out or disagreement of some sort between them both which she has only paid approx half of what was owed (total owed $21, 000). My husband let it go for so long only bc of how busy he was in general with work, thinking she would pay at some point. She is a realtor and her husband is a doctor. ...Read More

I am in Indiana and removed a dangerous dead tree from the property and I am not being paid. My lawyer does not think that tree work falls under the Indiana statute but I see case law like referenced in the article above that since I am making a permanent improvement to the property I should be entitled to the mechanic's lien. Thoughts?...Read More

We don’t have a contract on price agreement but do have a contract for work performed and his workmanship warranty. He’s threatening to file a lien after literally less than a week without being paid. How should I pursue this? Thanks...Read More

I had my basement finished in 2018. The main contractor sub contracted tile work in the new bathroom. He did not pay the sub so the sub put a mechanics lien on my property (I had know idea that was possible). The main told me back in 2018 that he was taking care of it and blamed the sub yada yada. I now am in the process of selling my house and notice this is still recorded. The company with the lien is no longer in business and I don't know how to get in touch with him. Since this has been over 3 years will this not effect me when I go to sell? ...Read More
