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.
