187+ pp. + CD;

Responding to a lien claim requires the same careful analysis as filing one. So familiarity with both processes is not just helpful but essential. Find a clear introduction and an excellent resource on construction lien law in one comprehensive volume. In plain English, the Construction Lien Law Handbook addresses the confusing section of the Wisconsin Statutes on perfecting and enforcing liens. It discusses notices and filing deadlines, lienability of work and materials, and priority over liens, among other things, and includes checklists and forms.

Inside, you’ll find answers to questions such as:

  • What steps are required to perfect a lien?
  • What six elements need to be included in the claim?
  • What do you need to file on behalf of your client?
  • Are public and private projects treated the same?
  • Is a bond required?
  • What materials, services, and work are lienable?

With the Wisconsin Construction Lien Law Handbook, you’ll gain the knowledge and understanding necessary to help your client, whether it’s a construction company, a subcontractor, or a property owner.

The book includes downloadable forms.

The Fourth Edition includes the following changes:

•             Updated case law and statutes
•             Updated forms and checklists
•             Discussion of Wisconsin’s Right-to-Cure Act
•             New appendix materials
