Mechanic’s Liens Can Ensure You Get The Money You Are Owed
Call Us When Your Construction Lien Needs Enforcement
Massachusetts’ law requires a contractor to have a written contract or a series of documents evidencing a written contract to be eligible to file a mechanic’s lien. It is helpful to have an experienced construction attorney like Richard Mucci assist you in filing and enforcing your lien as the legal statute has very strict deadlines and recording requirements.
For example, the first step is recording a notice of contract at the registry of deeds where the property is located by the earliest of the following dates:
- 60 days after recording a notice of completion
- 90 days after recording of a notice of termination
- 90 days after the contractor, subcontractor or supplier last performed labor or provided materials
After filing a notice of contract, the contractor must record a statement of account and then file a civil action to enforce its rights within a specific time period.
