We are a Different Type of Construction Law Firm:
Georgia’s Mechanics and Materialmen’s Lien statutes are written to benefit a large class of claimants including foresters, surveyors, architects, engineers, general contractors, specialty contractors, equipment rental companies and building supply companies. These statute, when utilized to their fullest, can prevent non-payment. That’s the good news. The bad news is that those claiming their rights under these laws must comply with each and every requirement under the law. Thus, it is advisable to use the services of a Georgia attorney to help you navigate these statutes.
Did you know, for example, that third-claimants such as sub-subcontractors and materialmen usually have to take affirmative steps to preserve thier lien rights? That right, they need to send a Notice to Owner (also called Notice to Contractor or Notice of Furnishing) with the first thirty days they are on the job. Even if you fail to do this, however, perhaps your claim falls under an exception, but you must know the exceptions.
Another area where we see clients trip-up is with the filing deadline for the mateiralman lien (or the claim against a payment bond). Typically, a Georgia lien must be filed within 90 days of the last day worked; however, if the lien claimant executes a (valid) Georgia lien waiver, then the deadline for filing the lien may be shortened to either 60 days from the date of the signing of the lien waiver or 90 days from the last day worked whichever is less!
