The Watkins Firm has decades of experience helping contractors to foreclose on mechanics liens in San Diego and Southern California. It is important to act quickly in these matters to protect your rights and our ability to successfully recover the amounts which are rightfully owed to you. Why do you need the attorneys at the Watkins Firm to enforce your mechanic’s lien? The only way to foreclose on a mechanics lien in California is to file suit in Superior Court. You will not be able to take the project owner or landowner to small claims court or arbitration. If your business is an LLC, a limited partnership or a corporation the foreclosure lawsuit must be filed by an attorney.
We encourage our contractor clients to use a lien filing service or take other prudent action to ensure their mechanic’s liens are filed in an accurate and timely fashion. We recommend moving quickly and filing appropriate preliminary notice actions within 20 days of the lien’s recordation. If you are not under a direct contract with the property or project owner this notice must be served on multiple parties including the general contractor, the property/project owner and any lender or financial institution with an interest in the project or property. If the notice action forms are not completed correctly or serve the preliminary notice as required by law is almost always an absolute bar to maintaining the claim associated with your lien.
