Can a mechanical lien be placed on temporary agriculture food plots?

Trenton, SC |

A company has file a false lien against us, there are many factors to this lean, but the biggest question I have is can a mechanical lien be out on us, because foot plots are not permanent. For example can a mechanical lien be placed on row crops?

Generally, a mechanic's lien is based on work that a person or company does on behalf of a property owner. A mechanic's lien can attach to the property that was the focus of the work or improvement. For example, if a contractor does work on a house for which he/she is not paid, he/she can seek a mechanic's lien that attaches to the house and land where the house is situated.

If the person or company was hired to develop or harvest the plots or crops, a lien would not attach to the temporary crops or crop plants. Rather, the lien attaches to the land where the crops are situated.

An attorney can help determine the validity of the lien or your rights against the lien. There are certain strict timelines for each party to act when a lien is filed. An attorney can help navigate the paperwork and any court action. Hope this helps.
