Mechanic’s liens, sometimes also called construction liens, are important to understand if you are planning construction or having work done on your property. Mechanics liens are legal claims against the property by a contractor or other service provider that provided work or materials for the construction or improvement of the property and is claiming that they did not receive payment.
