Your Rights Under CO Construction Lien Law
- Posted at 02/12/2013
Most of the time construction projects go smoothly and everyone is happy. You perform your work and get paid while the property owner whom you worked for gets added value to the property. Every once in a while, however, there are bumps in the road: disagreements on project completion, a property owner who is unhappy with your work or someone who just doesn’t want to pay your bill. What recourse do you have?
Fortunately for construction service providers, Colorado construction lien law allows for liens to be placed against the property being improved if you don’t get paid for your work. This applies to each service provider who worked on the project, even if you are a subcontractor who performed only a small portion of the work.
