Mechanics’ Lien Discharge Bonds - The Substitutes of the Surety World

Recorded On: 04/09/2019


Mechanics’ lien discharge bonds are the substitutes of the surety world. They substitute for a previously filed mechanics’ lien, providing relief to owners and contractors alike from the onerous procedures, rules, and remedies that such liens carry with them. They may also provide added time to negotiate a settlement by substituting their own statutes of limitations. While mechanics’ lien discharge bonds are not without their risks, they offer a satisfying alternative in that owners and other stakeholders can insulate their property interests from foreclosure, while contractors have a simpler alternative to recovery than foreclosure. During this virtual seminar, we will take a look a mechanics’ liens and mechanics’ lien discharge bonds. Our speaker Mike Pipkin a partner at the Dallas office of the law firm of Weinstein Radcliff Pipkin LLP, will review real-world examples and examine the risks, rewards, and alternatives to mechanics’ lien discharge bonds.
