Efficient Representation For Mechanics Liens And Bond Claims

Mechanics liens and bond claims are some of the most common — and complicated — issues that arise in construction disputes. Most commonly, contractors file liens or bond claims based on withholding of payment, generally for services rendered, equipment or materials. These often result from delays or nonpayment issues.

In the event that an owner tries to proceed with construction, refinancing or sales, it will be necessary to discharge the lien or bond as it will act as a cloud on the title. Additionally, in the case of public works projects, a government agency may require a bond to be furnished prior to the start of a project to ensure that all payments will be made when a project is completed.

Drafting, filing, and discharging bonds and liens can be immensely complicated, and require a procedural knowledge and attention to detail that many firms cannot provide. Chitkowski Law Offices offers representation based on its comprehensive experience throughout Chicagoland.
