About the Webinar

This seminar will begin with a brief explanation of how liens are created, perfected and enforced in Illinois, pursuant to the Illinois Mechanics Lien Act.  Aside from mechanics lien rights, we will briefly cover the other remedies available to material suppliers, subcontractors, and contractors.  Next we will delve into lien waivers, conditional and unconditional waivers, and partial and final waivers.  We will conclude with problems which may arise when lien waivers are given, yet payment is not received.
