There is a crisis and high stakes war in the construction industry between the top and bottom of the contracting chain. Its sad, but sadder for those companies who dont realize it, and get burned.

Sometimes, I read and write so many articles on a topic, that I find the information getting disorganized and too hard to grasp. That was happening with regard to mechanics lien waivers. This is a thorny topic that can get a bit out of control with all of the legal and practical nuances involved.

So, I spent a lot -- and I mean, a lot -- of time putting together a comprehensive ultimate guide on the lien waiver topic.  This takes the reader from the very start of the topic (i.e. What is a lien waiver), all the way through the process of crafting policies to handle waivers, navigation of some little nuances related to waivers, and what tools are available to solve the lien waiver problem.

Give it a read, and leave me some thoughts on what you think of the article.

Does the construction industry have a payment fraud problem, or is everyone simply engaged in a friendly and harmless game of financial risk shifting?

Article published this afternoon as a MultiBriefs Exclusive:  Mechanics Lien: Everything you ever wanted to know.

As you know, we write about mechanics lien claims a lot, and we know a lot about lien claims. If you're looking for information on liens you can get inundated by data and commentary.  But what if you just want a very high level overview of these claims, but enough detail to be fully informed?

This is the article for you.  It's everything you ever wanted to know...not everything you could know :).
