Changes to California Mechanic's Lien Laws Relieve Frustration in Construction

In California, mechanic's lien laws changed. Owners are now entitled to receive a "notice of mechanic's lien." Previously, owners had no way of knowing about a mechanic's lien without running a title report. This often led to frustration among owners who were taken by surprise and were often unable to refinance due to liens that they were unaware of. The new changes require that the owner be sent a "notice of mechanic's lien" before the claim is filed.
