More Sales. Less Risk.

Control Your Lien Rights.

  • Extend credit on virtually any project

Get Paid Always. Not If.

Don’t Get Placed In Back of the Payment Line.

"Don't waste your time looking at anyone else."

Smooth Payments For Everyone. Even You.

"With a click of a button, we fixed a major company headache nationwide."

Eliminate Lien Exposure By Seeing More

More visibility and fairness for all.

Even on small projects, it’s difficult for a property owner to see past the general contractor and know who’s doing what work. When things go awry, you don’t have the necessary information to get them back on track—or worse, you might not even know until it’s too late.

You want a successful project without legal claims and cost overruns.

zlien empowers property owners to track what’s happening on their projects and exchange vital documents to avoid liens and other unwanted actions. Projects can go smoothly with Fair Construction Payment Management.

  • Track and manage all parties working on your project
  • Get insight on who is supplying on your project, even if you don’t know
  • Avoid surprises by requesting and exchanging lien notices
  • Easily exchange fair and accurate lien waivers
  • Improve relationships with the contractors and suppliers on your project
  • Optimize your bulky and paper intensive processes

Property developers can manage their lien exposure and avoid hidden liens

No Hidden Liens

Enhance Your Visibility & Lower Your Risk

Lenders, sureties, and other stakeholders in a construction project must chase around project and participant information in an effort to reduce expensive financial and legal risks. Too often, the information is hard to find, and more difficult to interpret and understand even when found.

You want a project without disputes and hidden claims.

That’s exactly what we empower our users to do across all their lending or bonding portfolio.

  • Stay ahead of disputes by avoiding liens and bond claims
  • Understand your claim and lien exposure in detail
  • Track and manage all parties working on a project
  • Avoid surprises by requesting and exchanging lien notices
  • Easily exchange fair and accurate lien waivers
  • Optimize your bulky and paper intensive processes
  • Eliminate payment abuse practices
