Albany Mechanic's Lien Attorneys

Troy Garageman's Lien Lawyers

When contractors or subcontractors perform work on a job and do not get paid by the general contractor or prime contractor, they have a right to pursue a mechanic's lien to ensure payment for their work. Likewise, companies who provide towing, auto body work, repairs or storage services for cars, boats or aircraft are entitled to a garageman's lien to ensure payment for their work. If the lien is not paid in a timely manner, the lien holder is entitled to foreclose the lien and sell the property subject to the lien.

Contractors or garagemen who seek the relief afforded by a mechanic's lien or garageman's lien under New York law must be careful. New York's mechanic's liens laws and garageman's liens laws are subject to detailed requirements which must be strictly complied with.

At Hacker Murphy, LLP, we are committed to helping unpaid contractors and service providers protect their rights through the proper filing, perfection and enforcement of mechanic's liens and garageman's liens.
