Lien & Bond Claims in Texas
Texas law gives lien and bond claim rights to people who furnish labor or materials on construction projects. Our lien and bond claim laws are complex, and the notices and filings required to perfect a lien or bond claim depend on the person’s role on the construction project, the type of project, and other factors.
We regularly are retained to assess and perfect lien and bond claims on public, private, commercial and residential projects.
We assess our clients’ ability to perfect and foreclose on mechanics’ liens or bond claims, and help our clients take the steps necessary to perfect and enforce our clients’ lien rights or remove invalid liens. We have prosecuted and defended against lien foreclosure actions and have pursued actions against payment and performance bonds.
We are knowledgeable about the lien and bond claim process and laws, and can help you assess and enforce your rights. Call us (817) 860-9200 or submit an email today and allow us to review your construction case.
