Those that work on construction sites in Texas are blessed with many laws that protect them. The problem is that actually following those laws is so hard that most of the time the person trying to file the mechanic’s lien affidavits and related documents messes up on one or more critical points. This can totally invalidate the lien and make it worthless.
There are strict deadlines that must be followed and if it is a state or federal government or certain other types of projects, there are no mechanic’s liens allowed. In those situations, you have to timely make a claim on the construction bond filed in the matter.
We have worked on over a million dollar’s worth of liens that we eventually got invalidated to failure to follow the rules carefully.
You need an experienced construction and debt collection lawyer to assist you in preparing, filing and collecting on your contractor related debt.
