    Product Description

    Get an introduction to the basics of mechanics’ liens in Massachusetts, and their impact on title to real estate. Learn the steps for creating and perfecting a mechanics’ lien on real estate, who can claim such liens and for what—and how long these liens remain an encumbrance on title. Equally important, master the methods of satisfying or otherwise removing mechanics’ liens from title. Become conversant in the priority of mechanics’ liens as against buyers, mortgagees, lessees, and other lien claimants. And understand the impact of the forced funding provisions of the now twenty-two year old revisions to our mechanics’ lien statute and the impact of the Prompt Pay Law, particularly in reference to commercial construction loans. Build and sharpen your skills in a well-spent hour—and master your craft.
