In Michigan, Contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, and laborers who have a contract with a General Contractor or Sub-contractor can file a mechanics lien. This can grant a security interest in the property that has been improved through labor or products purchased in reliance on a contract. In order to set one up, it requires a little work on the front end to save a lot of work at the end. If you are a contractor or sub-contractor and you would like to ensure payment for your services, you should contact an experienced attorney to set up a mechanic’s lien and protect your interest.
