If you are a construction owner and owe money to a contractor or supplier, a construction lien may be placed against your business. A construction lien is utilized to recoup payment for services provided by the contractor, materials that have been supplied, or labor for site improvements when the construction owner has failed to compensate. The refusal to make payments as agreed allows the payee to make the lien against the property until the debt is settled per the agreement and any other liabilities that may have arisen from nonpayment of services. To avoid a lien, verify payment of services.
