As the days become shorter and shorter, and the dark hours become longer and longer, for construction companies and project owners alike (including homeowners), this means one important fact. Construction projects are wrapping-up for the winter season. This means lien rights need to be understood.
In Oregon, a lien claimant (the one performing the work) has 75-days from the last date that they provided labor, materials and/or provided rental equipment, under the contract, to file a lien against the project. Punch work does not toll the 75-day timing requirement, it is specifically contract work (unlike Washington).
Slingshot Legal Services can assist both contractors and homeowners in lien issues, whether it is preparing and filing the lien on behalf of the contractor or subcontractor or defending a lien on behalf of the homeowner.
