Georgia’s Lien Statute Amendment Signed by Governor Deal

Rencent Amendement to Georgia Lien Statute

by Mark Cobb

We are excited to report that earlier this week, Georgia’s Governor Nathan Deal signed HB 434 into law thereby amending our state’s lien statute to allow lien claimants to include the amount due and owing the lien claimant under the terms of an express or implied contract, subcontract, or purchase order as well as interest on the past due balance.   We’ve written more extensively about the 2013 amendment to Georgia’s lien laws, but we wanted to follow-up with our readers and let you know that the bill is now law.  Thank you Gov. Deal.

If you have any questions regarding the changes to our state’s lien laws or if you have any other questions regarding construction liens, payment bonds, Miller Act claims or construction contracting in Georgia, please contact the lawyers at the Cobb Law Group by email or call us at (866) 960-9539 today!
