The Holiday Season is upon us. It’s that time of the year when we all start to take time off to spend time with  family and friends.

How to get your lien filed on time without needing the zlien rush fee

When you are preparing to file a mechanics lien, there are a few important things to consider: the type of work performed, the project type, and state and county where your job site is located.  These factors are important because they will dictate the deadline for filing your lien. It's important to file your lien claim before the state's statutory deadline to ensure your claim is valid. To help your team stay on top of deadlines and have guidelines to follow when filing a lien, we at zlien recommend developing a Lien Strategy.

Our office is just a walk away from the excitement of Carnival season festivities! Because of this, on Mardi Gras Day, February 28th, our office will be closed, Support and Operations will be suspended, and mailings may be affected.
