What do I need to file a construction lien?

To prepare a lien affidavit, you will need the general information of the project and your contract. Below is a list of most of the information that is most needed to file a lien.

Project Information: Owner, name of project, common address (or legal property description), county where the project is located.
For Subcontractors: Name (or company name) and mailing address of the General (Prime) Contractor.
For Sub-subcontractors: It is not required but preferred to have the name and mailing address of all Subcontractors involved in the contract chain.
Work: Invoice dates, description of the unpaid work performed and the amount owed per each individual month.

Who can file a Construction Lien?

Any person or company who provides labor, materials, equipment and supplies to a project and has not received payment for the work performed is entitled to file a lien on a property.
Note: Landscapers, Landscape materials suppliers and those who furnishes labor or materials for, the demolition of a structure on real property, must have a written contract to file a lien.

What is a Lien Affidavit?

A Mechanic’s Lien Affidavit is a document that asserts a lien against property for your work when you have not been paid. It is often the best legal tool that contractors, subcontractors and suppliers have to protect themselves.

Depending on where you are located, a Mechanic’s Lien Affidavit can also be referred as “Project Lien”, “Construction Lien” and even “Contractor Lien”.

Do I have to file a claim for each month I am not paid?

Yes. You cannot wait until the end of the project and file one claim. You must satisfy various statutory notices for each month in which you were not paid.

How are the dates and deadlines calculated?

This is an important issue that is often misunderstood. The dates and deadlines related for lien and bond claims are based off the month and year in which the work was actually performed. The invoice date and your personal accounting methods are irrelevant.
The important issues are when the work was actually performed and the value of the work for each individual month.
For example, assume that ABC Painting, Inc., completed a three-month painting project that lasted from January to March. ABC Painting would need to separately identify the value of the work performed for January, February, and March. It would not matter if ABC only issued one invoice at the end of the project.

Is a lien the same as a bond?

They are similar, but not the same. On a private project where a governmental entity (i.e., state, county, city, school district, etc.) is not involved, an unpaid general contractor, subcontractor, or supplier can file a lien against the property. On a public works project where a governmental entity is involved, the same contractors or suppliers (but not the general contractor) would file a bond claim against the surety which is also known as a bonding company.

Both documents seek payment for unpaid work and both documents require similar notice and filing requirements. A bond can be thought of as money being held and guaranteed by an insurance company. A lien is a claim against the actual property where the unpaid work was performed.

In Texas, it is generally not an option to file a lien against public property. The general contractor for a public project valued over $25,000.00 is required to purchase a bond for the benefit of subcontractors and suppliers. For that reason, subcontractors and suppliers usually need to file a bond claim (rather than a lien) if they don’t get paid on a public works project.

Bonds are also occasionally used by general contractors on large private commercial projects.
