ALERT: Mechanic Lien Law Changes in The Last Frontier: Alaska

ALERT:  Mechanic Lien Law Changes in The Last Frontier:  Alaska Before last week, contractors and suppliers in Alaska were required to file a mechanic lien within 90 days from last furnishing labor and/or material to a construction project.   Alaska House Bill 253 (read full text), however, was passed into law and became effective on September 8, 2010, extending the period for 30-days.

Therefore, in Alaska, contractors, suppliers and other potential lien claimants must file their mechanic lien within 120-days from last furnishing labor and materials to the jobsite.

According to Rep. Jay Ramras’ (sponsor of bill) website, “The 30-day extension lets contractors, mechanics or material suppliers work with property owners to secure payment or negotiate a reasonable payment, avoiding a severe remedy.”

Zlien’s LienPilot has been updated effective September 8th with the new deadlines.
