On Dec. 12, 2018, The Michigan Legislature made a significant change to the Michigan Construction Lien Act, which will take immediate effect, to allow for design professionals, defined as architects, professional engineers, servers, and their subcontractors, to now record liens for design services performed prior to the first physical improvement made to a property.
Design professionals may have a lien for preconstruction services they perform, regardless of whether a physical improvement to the property ever occurs. This change does not, however afford the same right to construction managers, trade contractors or suppliers who perform the same task.
Whether you are a contractor design professional, a subcontractor, or a contractor; it is important to know your rights before, during, and after a construction project.
