Addressing Judgment Liens
Once a creditor obtains a judgment against a debtor, the creditor has a
variety of legal avenues to collect that debt. One way is through a judgment
lien, which attaches to a debtor's real estate under Colorado Revised
Statutes § 13-52-102. When the real estate is sold, the creditor
can then collect the portion of the proceeds for the debt owed. Whether
you are trying to collect on a debt or have had a lien filed against you,
we can work with you to ensure that the complex lien statutes and legal
requirements are met and a fair resolution is achieved on your behalf.
Handling Mechanic's Liens Issues
A mechanic's lien, sometimes called a construction lien or a materialman's
lien in other states, is a security interest in real property to ensure
payment for work rendered or materials incorporated into the property.
If the property owner does not pay, then the general contractor, trade
subcontractor, construction worker, or material supplier can file a lien
against the real property with the county's clerk and recorder. If
the debt ultimately remains unpaid, then the lien may be foreclosed by
filing suit and the property taken.
What Are Oil & Gas Liens?
Our firm has construction and property lawyers that know how to navigate
Colorado's oil and gas lien statutes. Oil and gas liens, codified
by Colorado's Wells and Equipment Lien statute C.R.S. § 38-24-101
et seq., provide lien rights to those performing labor or furnishing machinery,
material, fuel, explosives, power, or supplies for certain oil and gas
Common properties that may be subject to oil and gas liens are:
While oil and gas liens are similar in nature to general mechanic's
liens, there are many nuances that can prove costly if you are not familiar
with the differences. For instance, the lien does not attach to the proceeds
of severed oil and gas interests and does not attach to the mineral interests
themselves, unless the owner of the mineral interests was also a party
to the contract with the lien claimant. The statute also excludes certain
service providers from being able to impose a lien. Whether you are defending
against an invalid lien claim or asserting your lien rights, our team
of attorneys can handle your oil and gas lien issues from start to finish.
Offering Tax Lien Assistance
Tax liens can be imposed only by government entities. Federal and state
tax liens can be imposed to collect unpaid federal or state taxes. A county
can impose a lien for unpaid property taxes. By the time a tax lien has
been imposed, the taxpayer's account is in collection status and it
may no longer be possible to dispute the amount of the tax debt. However,
there are still some options available. In the case of unpaid income taxes,
either federal or state, our tax attorneys can assist with an offer in
compromise. An offer in compromise may reduce your tax debt. Once payments
under an offer in compromise are completed, the tax lien can be removed.
