Experienced Illinois Mechanic's Lien Attorneys.
General contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers who provide labor or materials for the construction or improvement of property in the State of Illinois, and who do not receive timely payment from the property owner, may file a lien a mechanic’s lien under Illinois law. The Illinois Mechanic’s Lien Act, specifically, is a powerful tool that allows unpaid general contractors, subcontractors and/or material suppliers to file a lien (a/k/a attach a lien) against property and ultimately have the property sold to pay the balance due under the lien claim.
Due to the powerful tools available to general contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers to collect payment under the Illinois Mechanic’s Lien Act, lienholders must comply exactly with the Act’s requirements or else the lien will be deemed null and void. Conversely, because the Illinois Mechanic’s Lien Act permits lienholders to force the sale of property (foreclosure action), the Act affords property owners, especially single-family residence property owners, with a considerable degree of consumer protection.
