I don't normally do commercial, but got a veterinary clinic TI job. What type of lien do I place on a commercial job? Mechanics? or just prelim it? or other?

The laws on this vary from state to state. A letter of Intent to File has always worked for me and I've never had to follow through.

I met a guy here that sat on a lien for 12 yrs. before getting paid.

lien

Just want to be clear, I am a new GC and doing my first TI (commercial) job I am personally bonded. I want to make sure I receive payment from the lease owner of the vet clinic I am remodeling for them. Is my contract enough?Or is their a lien I can place to prevent them from opening the business until I am paid in full?

Sorry about my first answer. I was thinking you were a sub.

What makes you believe they are not going to pay?

How was your work performance?

A letter of intent will usually work better than an actual lien, but I am wondering why you think they will not pay you.
