I am a contractor who has not been paid. What are my rights?

Nevada has a very complex and comprehensive set of laws contained within Nevada Revised Statutes Chapter 108 designed to protect contractors, laborers, material suppliers and even various professionals such as architects, engineers, geologists and land surveyors.

In the event someone who provides labor or materials fails to be paid, they may be able to assert a mechanics lien against the property benefited by their efforts.

The successful assertion of such a lien may result in a court order that the property involved be sold, with the proceeds being used to pay lien claimants.

To be able to assert a valid lien claim requires that specific notices be timely served as legally required. In addition, there are precise deadlines by which a lawsuit must be filed to enforce a lien. Missing the deadline may result in permanent forfeiture of your lien.
