Construction liens have been a part of Arizona’s law for over 100 years. Under this law, anyone who constructs improvements on property, supplies materials, rents equipment, or provides services for improvements has a right to collect payment from the property if they are not paid. If the general contractor is not paid or does not pay the subcontractors, laborers, material suppliers, or equipment rental companies, those persons may claim a lien against the property. Contact us today if you are having trouble collecting money from a debtor, you might be able to place a lien on their real property, even if you haven’t been able to collect after retaining services of a debt collection attorney or debt collection agency.
A Mechanic lien will enable a contractor to collect owed money earned performing construction work by encumbering (burden with debts or legal claims) the property that was worked on until the debt is paid if full.
