Des Moines Mechanics’ Liens Attorneys
In the construction industry, suppliers often have no choice but to provide materials before final payment is secured. Therefore, suppliers of construction materials generally must be paid for their services before the structures they built can be sold or rented to a third party for profit. This basic tenet of construction law is called a mechanics’ lien. This kind of lien helps ensure that individuals in the construction industry receive payment for the property in a timely manner, typically before that property changes hands.
If you feel you are still owed payment from your work on a construction project, a knowledgeable Des Moines mechanics’ lien lawyer may be able to help you secure the amount owed to you.

Who Can File a Mechanics’ Lien?
Whether you can have a mechanics’ lien depends to some extent on the amount of material that you have contributed to the construction project. Sometimes it is not necessary to have the lien in writing; the existence of the lien may only depend on the amount you have spent on the project. One important thing to note is that you do not have to be a mechanic in the technical sense in order to have a mechanics’ lien. The law applies broadly to many kinds of construction suppliers, including:
- Cement makers
If you feel that your mechanics’ lien was violated, you may be entitled to seek legal recourse for this disregard for your service
If you provided material in a construction project but did not receive full payment even when the property owner began to turn a profit, the owner may be in violation of your mechanics’ lien. An experienced Des Moines mechanics’ lien attorney can help you make sense of this complex but important part of the legal code.
