Construction Litigation, Louisiana Liens and Privileges
Mechanic’s liens or construction liens – called privileges
in Louisiana – protect the rights of contractors and subcontractors
to collect the money property owners owe them for their work on a specific
piece of real estate. Liens are designed to protect contractors in case
homeowners or property owners refuse to pay for work completed on their property.
Louisiana lien law has its own unique labyrinth of rules, and perfecting
a lien involves meeting strict deadlines. Contractors and materialmen
need professional legal counsel to help them file all the necessary paperwork
and notices to ensure their liens can be preserved and perfected.
