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.

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 also 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.

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. I look forward to talking with you.
