Liens on Property

Debts and Liens on Property

A lien may be placed on real property due to a debt or other obligation that is owed by the property owner. The property is used to secure payment of the debt or obligation. A New York City property lien lawyer can assist you with understanding how this process works.

Liens can result due to obligations that relate to the property itself or they may relate to other items such as credit card debt having no relation to land whatsoever.

Additionally, a worker or business supplying building materials can retain a property lien lawyer in New York City to place a lien on property for the construction or improvement of the property. The laws governing the rights of contractors to place a lien on property vary from state to state. Usually, the contractor has the right to file a form (a mechanics lien) when payment is not made for materials or services provided.

As a property lien attorney in New York City, I work closely with my clients in all aspects of real estate law and contracts.

I graduated in the top 10% of my class at The New England School of Law in Boston and served on the prestigious “Law Review.” I have been an attorney at law in my own law practice in New York City since 1985. I enjoy working hard for each of my clients to meet their needs.

I am available through many methods of communication, including telephone, fax and e-mail. Call (212) 355-2575, fax (212) 751-5911 or fill out my contact form for an appointment with a New York City property lien attorney. I look forward to talking with you.

Client Reviews
Jules Haas helped me with managing the process in probate court for my father's estate through to its completion upon the sale of my father's house. He was knowledgeable, efficient, and effective in submitting documentation to the probate court, explaining procedures to me, and advising me as to the progress of my case. His support staff was also very helpful. He made what for me created so much anxiety into something manageable where I could see progress every step of the way. His fees were very reasonable. I am super grateful to him for all the help he has provided and strongly recommend his services.

I found Mr. Haas after being misguided by a former attorney. Mr. Jules Haas took our case which involved an estate/trust dispute. What initially seemed like an impossible and overwhelming legal fight was now in the hands of someone who had the integrity and legal expertise to win our case. Mr Haas' attention to detail and his expert knowledge base, skillfully and successfully guided us through an intricate legal process. I am very thankful and grateful to Mr. Jules Haas for representing our interest and ultimately winning. Bringing about a peace of mind we needed. Thank You Devida Nedd
