Roofing Company Lien

This news has brought to mind many questions about the roofing process. Most homeowners have no idea of roof repair basics, let alone understand the legal consequences associated with failure to pay for contracted work. The truth is, a lien can be placed against any property in which payment for services has not be made according to the contractual obligation. The short of it: homeowners that do not pay their roof contractor for performed services can be subject to serious consequences.

Having a lien placed against the property essentially prohibits the sale of the home until a debt is paid. There are numerous examples of liens that can be taken out against a home, most often for non-payment of services or taxes on the home. Although a lien doesn’t necessarily impose an immediate threat for a homeowner, unresolved debts can bring serious legal action and even threaten foreclosure. Therefore, homeowners must ensure they follow the terms of any signed contract for services performed on their home in order to protect themselves from the possibility of a lien.
