Historic Fayette County Georgia CourthouseIf you are a construction industry professional, then it is vital–more than ever–to make sure that you take advantage of every opportunity to make sure you get paid.  Fortunately, Georgia’s law on construction liens as well as the Little Miller Act offer you benefits to ensure your payments.  However, to avail yourself of these wonderful benefits, you must send proper notices, make timely claims, and properly prosecute your rights effectively.  Mistakes can make the difference between getting paid and losing your shirt.  Don’t let this happen to you.
