Whether you are a finance company or your company extends lines of credit to facilitate business transactions, you will eventually experience a debtor defaulting on their financial obligations. Naturally, there are legal remedies to go after delinquent debtors; however, what happens when the individuals and businesses that owe you money seek bankruptcy protection? How do you go about collections?

Collecting On Mechanic’s And Materialmen’s Liens
The laws regarding mechanic’s and materialmen’s liens are incredibly complicated and have strict deadlines. If a contractor or subcontractor doesn’t get his mechanic’s and/or materialmen’s lien filed quickly and accurately, he or she can forever lose the right to collect from the property owners or original contractor. Even if a lien is filed before the deadline, negotiations could fall through requiring a lawsuit to collect on debts.
