The construction industry has a vital debt collection tool that is not available in any other industry: The Mechanic’s lien. The Mechanic’s lien allows you to place a lien against the property that you have helped to improve through materials or services. You don’t even have to have had a contract with the owner of the property to record a mechanic’s lien against the property.

However, what you do need is a written contract.

Not just any contract, but a contract which relates to the actual property which you will be directly or indirectly improving. A credit application is not good enough. That is why Alan M. Cohen has prepared a “notice of contract form,” which he can customize for your business, so you have the lynchpin necessary to prepare a Mechanic’s lien. Don’t chance that your paperwork won’t be enough to create a lien. Call our Massachusetts collections law firm  at (508) 620-6900 or email us at to learn about our collection services.

Even if you have not yet had us prepare a Notice of Contract, you may still be able to satisfy the written contract requirement if you have multiple writing, whether written or electronic, which would satisfy the statutory requirements of a Massachusetts enforceable contract.

Be wary of online companies that charge little for preparing a Mechanic’s lien.

Massachusetts General Law c. 254, the Mechanic’s lien statute, is a very complex and unforgiving statute. Do you want to trust your receivables to a company which is not licensed to practice law in Massachusetts, or which may not know all of the statutory law and court decisions concerning Mechanic’s lien? Our clients don’t. Contact our Massachusetts mechanic’s lien law firm online or call today for collection services to prepare and enforce a Mechanic’s lien, Notice of Contract and Statement of Account pursuant to c. 254 to protect your money.

When property owners, general contractors, or subcontractors cannot or will not pay for the work you have completed, it is critical to act quickly and decisively. The Mechanic’s lien process is detailed and time sensitive. If you miss any step in the process, you lose.
