Houston Lien & Bond Lawsuit Attorneys

Knowledgeable & Dedicated Legal Representatives in Your Corner: 281-677-3474

In Texas, lien law is often referred to as a legal minefield. The strict requirements of the property code make it necessary that the attorneys in this area be very familiar with the statute. Our office understands this statute and its complexities. We know what to send, who to send it to, and when it should be sent, to protect our client’s interest. We work closely with our clients to make sure that these liens are filed timely and contain the correct information.

Lien Litigation Services

Our legal professionals are very familiar with the process of contesting invalid liens. Often contractors file liens on a project without complying with the complicated lien statute. Noncompliance often renders the lien invalid and through a short process, we can remove the lien without costing our clients a great deal of money. However, sometimes these disputes wind up in litigation. If this happens, we are prepared to litigate the dispute.

Liens follow non-payment and the lien protects the interest of the lienholder for the work performed. However, what many do not consider are the secondary consequences of nonpayment. We understand these consequences and are familiar with the Prompt Payment Act, the Texas Construction Trust Fund Act, and other statutes concerning the disbursement of construction funds.

We can assist you with any of the following legal matters involving liens:

  • Filing mechanic’s and material man’s liens
  • Lien Removal
  • Prompt Payment Act Violations
  • Consequential Damages Due to Delayed or Non-Payment
  • Liquidated Damages Due To Delays Or Non-Payment
  • Construction Trust Fund Violations

What Is a Construction Bond?

Construction bonds, also known as surety bonds play a crucial role in the construction industry because they help ensure that contractors performing jobs are compliant with various contractual conditions and legal requirements. Construction bonds are legally binding agreements between project owners, contractors, and the surety company that issues and backs the bond. Construction bonds function as financial security for project managers by guaranteeing compensation if the contractor violates the conditions of the agreement. Under the Miller Act, construction bonds are required for contractors working on federal projects worth more than $150,000.

Depending on the situation, different types of surety bonds are required for contractors. Common types of construction surety bonds include:

  • Bid Bond
  • Performance Bond
  • Payment Bond
  • Maintenance Bond
  • Public Works Bond
  • Site Improvement Bond
