Perfecting A Mechanics Lien

In this episode of Learn About Law we explain how to perfect a #MechanicsLien in Illinois. The purpose of the Mechanics Lien Act is to ensure that contractors and subcontractors who provide labor, materials, fixtures, or machinery to improve real estate receive payment for their services and materials.

Mechanics Liens in Illinois are governed by the Illinois Mechanics LIen Act (770 ILCS 60/0.01, et seq.). 

 The purpose of the Mechanics Lien Act is to ensure that contractors and subcontractors who provide labor, materials, fixtures, or machinery to improve real estate receive payment for their services and materials.  

‍The Mechanics Lien Act provides a mechanism whereby contractors and subcontractors can place a lien on property that they work to improve in the amount of the value of their services and materials.  The lien prevents the owner of the property from transferring the property without first paying the contractor or subcontractor who holds the lien.  A Mechanics Lien also allows the contractor or subcontractor who holds the lien to foreclose on the property and have it sold in order to satisfy the lien.
