Determining the amount of a lien, or what costs can be included in the lien amount, is a complex process - and one that has been addressed several times by this blog. Recently, Scott offered some thoughts on whether the amount of a mechanic's lien should be directly tied to the value of the labor or work furnished. While this sounds like a relatively straight forward and inarguable rule, it turns out that it does not always apply. Other costs, like attorney's fees, the preparation costs and fees of a company like Zlien, filing fees, interest, and the like have been discussed here, here, here, and here, among other places. While this is already a complex determination, it may be even more difficult in Nebraska.
