Reminder: Louisiana Lien Period Starts When The Entire Project is Completed, Not Simply The Claimant’s Work


In most states, the deadline to file a mechanic lien starts when the claimant discontinues services. In Louisiana, it starts at the end of the entire construction project. An important distinction discussed by this blog post.
