Description

Mechanics' and materialmen's liens.  Removes the definitional requirement that one must give consent in writing in order to be a "mechanics' lien agent." The bill also authorizes any person entitled to claim a lien to notify the mechanics' lien agent that he seeks payment for labor performed or material furnished if the building permit contains the name, mailing address, and telephone number of the mechanics' lien agent. Current law provides that any person entitled to claim a lien may notify the mechanics' lien agent that he seeks payment for labor performed or material furnished only if, at the time of issuance, the building permit contains the name, mailing address, and telephone number of the mechanics' lien agent. Amends § 43-4.01, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
