What is a Mechanic’s Lien?

A mechanic’s lien is a document that guarantees payment for contract services or improvement services on a piece of property.  If a bill is left unpaid, a contractor can sign a mechanic’s lien which will ensure payment through a court process in which they can receive possession of the property.  A mechanic’s lien gives incentive to the the property owner to pay the contractor and is a prerequisite for a foreclosure filing.

What is a Mechanic’s Lien Waiver?

A mechanic’s lien waiver is a document signed by the contractor stating that they have received payment and waive any future lien rights to the property.  We at Canoe Country Title prepare and send these documents with the payment to the contractor for their services.
