What happens if there’s a mechanic’s lien on the property

Mechanics liens are used by construction companies when a property owner fails to pay a contractor for services, or when the general contractor fails to pay sub-contractors. Title insurance doesn’t provide protection against this. Hard money lenders will protect themselves against possible mechanics liens by making sure a loan includes the renovation budget, and that all of the sub-contractors and general contractors sign releases before disbursing funds.
