In Nevada, A Mechanics Lien can be filed on private property because of work that was performed by a contractor on private property. This lien attaches to the property and stays there until it is paid or handled. Have the lien on private property makes it difficult to resell or re-finance the property without removing the lien first.
Any contractor, subcontractor or supplier (who have contracts with a general or subcontractor) can file a Nevada Mechanics Lien on private property – however the contractor filing the lien must have a Nevada contractor’s license.
