A construction lien is recorded on your home. You are nervous. You are angry. You have many emotions and don’t know what to do.
First things first. Take a deep breath. Calm down.
Once you’ve had an opportunity to digest the issue, the best thing you can do is consult and retain a construction attorney.
All too frequently homeowners want to try to resolve the issue on their own because they don’t want to spend money on a lawyer. Sure, you will have to invest money in the lawyer, but the lawyer will give you the advice and recommendations you need to make the best decision in the long run. The lawyer will allow you to make a business decision, which is important, because sometimes it is tough to remove the personal feelings when dealing with a construction lien on your home.
I appreciate being thrifty when it comes to money. Just remember, prevention is better than a cure. In other words, investing on the front end for the right advice and the right procedure will save you time and money. It should also give you peace of mind that you are hiring a professional to ensure the implemented procedure is right. Investing in a construction attorney should not be perceived as a punishment, but should be perceived as an important part of risk management and assessment designed to save you the all too valuable time and money.
