A mechanic’s lien is a lien on a building or other property by those who performed work or furnish materials in the improvements of such property. Both landlords and tenants need to pay special attention to the responsibilities and remedies when a mechanic lien is “perfected”. Less than a month ago, Monarc Construction slapped a $130,777 mechanics lien on 3015 M Street NW for the work they performed on behalf of Sprinkles. The owner of the property, Hossein Shirvani is named in the suit as well. Katz and Stone published an informative article detailing the specifics on Mechanic’s liens.
