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

Posted by Desiree Baez

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.

As part of this recommended Lien Strategy, here are a few tips to minimize the cost of filing liens by getting your lien filed on time without needing to add zlien rush processing fees to expedite the process.
