Payment for services and goods is expected when the services or goods are delivered. When payment disputes arise, it can cause problems for your company’s bottom line. In some cases, it is necessary to protect your legal right to payment by placing a lien against the property or assets of the party who owes you money. The Nebraska lien attorneys of Berkshire & Burmeister help you protect your right to payment by taking the necessary steps to secure liens in your favor.
There are several ways to protect your right to payment. Filing a lien and enforcing the lien is a legal process. Therefore, you must follow the laws governing liens to ensure that your lien is valid and enforceable. The process begins by ensuring you have the documentation to prove that the party owes money to you for services or goods. Without the documentation to establish a debt, and a filing within the short time frame required by law, the lien is unenforceable.
The second step is equally important. The lien documents must be prepared accurately and served upon the other party correctly. Our Nebraska lien attorneys understand the legal requirements necessary to prepare and file a lien. They also understand the differences that exist between various counties and states for filing and serving liens properly.
Navigating the lien process can be complicated and difficult without experience and legal expertise. Instead of taking time away from your business to research law and procedures and risk making a costly mistake or error, let our legal team take care of preparing and filing your lien for you. You have the peace of mind of knowing that you have a strong legal advocate looking out for your best interest, and you can rest assured that we will do everything correctly the first time to save you time and money.
In some cases, a party does not have very long to file a lien once work has been performed or goods have been delivered. Mechanic’s Liens and Construction Liens must be filed by a specific deadline for the liens to be valid and enforceable. If you are owed money for work performed or goods provided for a construction project, we strongly encourage you to contact our Nebraska lien lawyers now.
The timeline for providing notice, filing the lien, and serving the lien can be overwhelming, especially when you have moved on to other projects. The legal team of Berkshire & Burmeister monitors deadlines and takes care of moving the lien through the process and timeline in an efficient manner to get the money owed to you as quickly as possible.
We have an aggressive approach to the lien process. It is our goal to file your lien as quickly as possible to give your lien the highest priority allowed by law. Also, we want your lien filed quickly so that other parties working with the project have ample notice that there is a valid, enforceable lien against the property that must be paid before the property can be transferred or mortgaged.
There is much at stake when you perform services or provide goods, and you are not paid. The attorneys of the Law Firm of Berkshire & Burmeister understand that you need your money as soon as possible.
