Texas Mechanic’s Liens
Dallas Construction Litigation Attorneys
Mechanic's liens are security interests in the title to property for the benefit of those who have provided labor or materials that improve the property. In Texas, contractors and suppliers file mechanic's liens on real property to secure payment from owners on construction contracts. Depending on the specific situation, certain timetables exist and failing to follow them can prevent the timely perfection of a statutory lien. The lien statutes in Texas are complicated and full of pitfalls. In a perfect world, the owner pays the contractor for completing the job, the contractor in turn pays subcontractors and suppliers, and the security interest on the property is released. Unfortunately, the construction industry is not always perfect. We can help.
The Dallas construction litigation attorneys at Lyons & Simmons, LLP help contractors, suppliers, materialmen, and property owners resolve disputes over mechanic's liens. From our office in Dallas, we handle all types of construction disputes throughout Texas and across the country for both plaintiffs and defendants.
