Perfecting Your Security Interests in Bankruptcy
A mechanic’s lien gives you a security interest in the title of property when you have supplied labor or materials to improve the property. Mechanic’s liens are commonly used in the construction business, where they may also be called construction or materialman’s liens. Without a lien, contractors and subcontractors have limited options to enforce payment for their work.
As the holder of a mechanic’s lien, you have priority over all other lien holders, including a bank or finance company that may have an interest in the property. As your attorney, I will show you how to perfect your lien to ensure that your security interest remains enforceable when the debtor files bankruptcy. Our goal in any bankruptcy case is to help you get paid as soon as possible.
