- What are the time limits that must strictly be followed to use mechanics liens to get paid by your customer.
- What are the requirements for “perfecting” a lien and how do you avoid losing your lien rights.
- What additional requirements must be met by a subcontractor or someone working on a residential project.
- When liens will not work for you.
- What are some common misunderstandings about liens that will help you to use liens when most contractors cannot.
