Michigan Construction Lien Act

Our firm has a wealth of experience handling construction law cases involving the Michigan Construction Lien Act. This act establishes and protects the rights of persons performing labor or providing material or equipment for the improvement of real property to enforce by lien. This allows contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and laborers to place a lien on a property in order to protect themselves from debt and losses. We have handled cases on both sides of this issue, for homeowners who have had liens placed against their properties and construction parties who have placed liens.
