The federal and state laws that govern liens, 1031 Exchanges, and real estate financing are highly technical. At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we have helped clients navigate these laws for over three decades.
Skilled Stamford Mechanic's Lien Attorney
Mechanic's liens protect the rights of vendors, contractors, and suppliers who provide services or materials that add value to real property. At the same time, a lien encumbers a property owner's ability to continue owning or dispose of the property without satisfying the obligation underlying the lien. Connecticut has specific laws that govern the effectiveness and duration of liens. These laws provide specific rights to the lien holders and specific protections to property owners whose property is encumbered.
At the Law Offices of Peter V. Lathouris, LLC, we help clients obtain and defend against property liens.
Liens are statutory creations, and for them to be valid, there must be services rendered relating to a property, the services must be above a certain value, they must be rendered pursuant to a mutual agreement, and the person seeking the lien must file the appropriate forms to record the lien. A failure to comply with any of the above may result in a defective lien. If a lien is effective, however, it allows the lien holder to foreclose on the property in the same manner as one would foreclose on a mortgage.
