I came across a blog article from Nevada law firm Albright, Stoddard, Warnick & Albright titled Nevada Mechanics Lien Validity Checklist. The article is written to developers, property owners and others who may be interested in invalidating a mechanics lien filed against their project, but I think it makes an excellent teaching tool to the other side: those contractors and suppliers who are interested in filing a mechanics lien in Nevada.
The checklist is very extensive. It contains 26 different checkpoint items a developer can go through to determine if a mechanics lien is invalid. If one of the 26 checklist items is a “yes,” there is an argument against the mechanics lien validity.
What can this tell potential lien claimants? That there’s a lot of things you can do wrong when filing a mechanics lien.
The last thing you want when you file a mechanics lien is to be met with a challenge to your claim. When you file a lien claim you want the conversation to be about your underlying dispute and whether payment is going to be made. You don’t want to be fighting about whether the technical aspects of your lien were correct.
