Why do contractors use mechanic's liens?

Contractors normally don't require their clients to pay for an entire project up front. It's pretty common for them to accept a down payment with the remainder of the balance due on a specific schedule, which is sometimes simply at the end of the project. Unfortunately, not all clients pay contractors as they should.

When a contractor isn't paid, they have a few options. They can forgive the balance, which isn't a good option for most businesses. They can go through a collections process, which gives the client more time to pay the contractor. If the client doesn't pay as they should, the contractor may have the option of filing for a mechanic's lien.
