  • Description
    Construction projects are a hive of activity, with everyone from architects and engineers to constructors and mechanics playing a role. But not everyone on a construction site has equal remedies against non-payment from the general contractor who hired them and owners can find themselves caught in a legal battle that is not of their own making. This CLE course will review the subcontractors’ remedy for these instances, typically referred to as a Mechanic’s Liens, a powerful tool used by contractors and sub-contractors to safeguard against non-payment for labor or materials for both public and private property. The course, led by Stuart Zisholtz, Esq. will explain the general principles of the Mechanic’s Lien and will then go in-depth into the types of work these liens cover, owners’ obligations, applicable property, contracts, waivers, enforcement and defense. The course will also cover issues related to trust funds and foreclosures.
