About the Webinar
A mechanic’s lien is often a subcontractor’s or supplier’s most powerful leverage to ensure prompt payment on privately-owned construction projects. Similarly, a payment bond claim provides the sub/supplier with security when attempting to collect payment on a publicly-owned project. However, it can be difficult to keep track of the various statutory deadlines and procedures governing these important remedies. This webinar will provide an overview of the key deadlines and requirements applicable to mechanic’s liens and payment bond claims in Connecticut.
