Construction Liens

Construction Lien Lawyers

If a trades-person or other professional has improved a property and not been paid, a construction lien protects their right to compensation. An owner who holds a property with liens against it does not hold clear title and is prevented from selling it. The Scott Furlong Ford construction lien lawyers offer skilled and timely advice, both in helping owners to safeguard against liens and in applying liens for vendors in order to procure payment for work that has been completed.

Time limits may govern when a claimant can register a lien. These time limits can restrict your rights to recover your losses.

Construction liens are often filed by:

  • Building material suppliers or equipment rental companies
  • Engineers and architects
  • Trades, or other workers hired for a construction project
  • Subcontractors hired by contractors or by other subcontractors
  • Contractors hired by the landowner

Complex laws affecting the construction industry include:

  • Contract law
  • Tendering
  • Construction claims
  • Defective workmanship claims
  • Delay claims
  • Guarantees
  • Lien rights and collection
  • Bonds
  • Warranty issues
  • Insurance claims
  • Contract disputes
The Scott Furlong Ford construction lien lawyers service clients throughout the areas of Oshawa, Whitby, Pickering and the greater Durham Region.
