Fort Worth Mechanic's Lien Attorney
Filing a Mechanic's Lien in Fort Worth
If you have performed labor or services on a property and have not been
paid, filing a mechanic's lien against the property may be your best
legal remedy. When general contractors, craftsman, laborers, suppliers,
architects, landscapers, and subcontractors are not compensated for their
work, they can place a lien on that real property.
The last resort for enforcement of a mechanic's lien is to file a lawsuit
to foreclose upon the lien and have the property sold in order to receive payment.
