Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

In California, those who can file a mechanics lien include main contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, equipment lessors, laborers, and design professionals. It’s important to note that design professionals, like architects and engineers, can only exercise lien rights if they have a written contract directly with the property owner.

In California, you usually don’t need a written contract to file a mechanics lien, except for design professionals who must have one with the property owner.

No, in California, if a contractor is unlicensed and the work requires a license, they cannot file a mechanics lien and also have no legal right to get payment under the contract.

For direct contractors, like general contractors who have a contract with the property owner, they must file a Claim of Lien within either 90 days of completing the project or 60 days after the owner records a Notice of Completion or Cessation, whichever comes first.

For anyone hired by someone other than the property owner (like subcontractors, suppliers, etc.), the Claim of Lien must be filed within either 90 days of finishing the job or 30 days after the owner records a Notice of Completion or Cessation, whichever happens first. It’s important to note that sub-tier claimants can only file a mechanics lien after they have stopped their work.

To file a California mechanics lien, you need to submit the necessary documents to the county recorder’s office. It must be recorded in the county where the project is located. However, each county has its own specific rules and requirements therefore it is best to consult a mechanic’s lien lawyer.
