Did you know?
You can file a mechanics lien even if . . .
- your customer was a tenant and not the owner
- your customer doesn't own the property anymore
- your customer has filed bankruptcy (under some circumstances)
IMPORTANT ALERT! Some lien-preparation companies are now claiming that you can include their fee in the lien. Not true. Literally hundreds of Illinois court cases state that your lien is limited to the value of labor and materials used to improve the property. Lien-preparation fees are not includable. Be very careful. If you overreach, you risk your entire lien being struck down. See FAQ’s for more information.
BREAKING NEWS! We now offer electronic filing of mechanics liens! See FAQ's for details.
