The mechanic’s lien can require the property owner to pay the attorney’s fees. This is important to understand, whether you are the contractor seeking to foreclose on a mechanic’s lien or a property owner that’s trying to defend against the mechanic’s lien. The way that the statute shifts the attorney’s fees is very complex and must be paid attention to at every step of the claim.
