Cross Your T’s With Liens, or Risk Everything
“Be warned that most states strictly construe lien laws against the lien claimant. That means even a slight clerical misstep can invalidate a lien and leave you with nothing. There are also a minority of states that have taken a more liberal approach by only requiring reasonable or substantial compliance with statutory lien requirements,” writes William J. Shaughnessy, Esq. in the February 15the edition of Construction Law Newsletter published by ConcensusDocs.
