Basic requirements of filing a mechanics lien

by Alan M. Cohen LLC Debt Collection Lawyer in Boston

A mechanics lien is a great legal tool for a contractor’s, subcontractor or any other individual who has provided services or products in association with the improvement of a property. The purpose of this legal tool is to secure their right to payment for the services and the products offered.

The most important reason why a mechanics lien in Massachusetts is a useful lien for creditors is that by law it does not require court consent before it is filed. This helps the creditors put a question on the title on the real estate for the job or the materials they have provided on the site without investing time and money in daunting court cases. The main thing is the individuals looking for the lien must have a contract signed by the parties contracting for the work to be done. The notice of the contract including all the relevant information should be recorded no later than 60 days after filing or recording a notice of completion or 90 days after the contractor, subcontractor or supplier has last supplied materials or conducted the work.  Along with a written notice of contract, an individual claiming the lien must serve the notice of contract upon the property of the owner to perfect a mechanics lien. Also, the statement of account with the registry of deeds should be recorded timely. After the statement of account is placed, the contractor should file a civil action within 90 days of filing a statement of account.
