The construction lein can foreclose after filing up to 8 months after, the second part of your fact pattern sounds like the lein may be outside of the time frame for proper filing time.
Your construction lien can attach only to the property where the work was performed. Your lien claim must be filed no later than 90 days after you have stopped working on the project. If you have missed this deadline, you lose the right to file your construction lien, but you are still entitled to be compensated for the services you rendered. In order to foreclose on a lien that is filed within the 90 days, you must file a court action within 8 months after the lien claim was recorded.
Hope this helps
