How To Avoid Mechanic’s Liens
The best way to resolve mechanic’s lien problems is not have them in the first place. Here are some ways to avoid trouble with mechanic’s liens being placed on your property:
- When paying for work, include the contractor and subcontractor’s names on any checks.
- Have the subcontractors sign a lien waiver from the general contractor, if allowed.
- Make payments directly to the suppliers or subcontractors, so the money doesn’t funnel through the general contractor. Use this option only as a last resort because it may cause other complications regarding tax withholding laws and other issues.
