Partner Daniel C. Wennogle and associate Jennifer Knight Lang recently authored a Colorado-specific mechanic's lien checklist for Lexis Practical Guidance.
The authored checklist outlines the basic requirements for recording a mechanic's lien in Colorado to secure payment for work performed; services rendered; or materials, labor, tools, or equipment furnished to a construction project. It also contains practical tips for those recording liens to ensure compliance with the statute.
The checklist was published on March 31 by Lexis Practical Guidance. An excerpt from the article is below.
Verify That the Potential Lien Claimant Has the Right to File a Lien
Practitioners should read the checklist below, but also be sure to read and reread the statute regularly to ensure strict compliance with its rules, because a failure to comply can result in a loss of lien rights. Colorado courts will liberally construe the remedial provisions of the mechanic’s lien statute with an aim toward protecting those who provide value to construction projects, as long as those parties have strictly complied with the statutory requirements for perfecting and recording a mechanic’s lien statement.
