When a property owner fails to pay a contractor, or a contractor fails to pay a subcontractor for work performed, Colorado’s mechanic’s and construction lien laws give the contractor or subcontractor the power to place a lien on the property.  Colorado’s mechanic’s lien trust fund statute brings severe penalties for contractors that do not pay their subs, including the possibility of triple damages and attorney fees. Colorado construction lien law is highly complex, convoluted, and the paperwork and timing must be perfect, making it nearly impossible to navigate without an experienced construction attorney on your side.
