Liens Attorneys in Colorado
Filing & Acquiring Liens Following All Legal Requirements
Liens are a powerful remedy for nonpayment, but it is critical to prepare and file a lien correctly. Making a mistake can unravel your ability to recover payment on your debt owed. In fact, you could end up owing money to the other party if the lien is filed incorrectly, effectively turning the situation around.
Our Colorado liens lawyers from Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. have extensive knowledge of the statutes and laws that control and regulate liens throughout the state. Our established practice in both construction law and creditor bankruptcy has given us a valuable perspective and a depth of understanding of debtor-creditor issues that few other firms can offer. In fact, we can be called upon to both file and defend lien actions, meaning we can assist either side of the case.
Depending on the situation, we may assist you in:
- Preparing a notice of intent to file a lien statement
- Recording a lien statement
- Instituting or defending lien foreclosure actions
- Discharging liens
- Removing liens using bonds
- Drafting of non-liability notices

What Does a Lien Do?
Liens are effectively a second legal claim over a piece of property, created in the terms and conditions of a loan. Instead of granting immediate ownership over the property, though, a lien only becomes active when a loan payment is missed. There might be special clauses written into a loan contract that modifies when a lien is activated.
For example: Liens are commonly used when an individual takes out an automobile loan from a bank. The bank grants the loan under the condition that a lien is placed on the automobile being purchased. If the buyer misses one or more payments, then the bank is granted the right to seize the vehicle. Once a vehicle is seized, the bank will likely sell it and keep any profits from the sale.
How Our Colorado Liens Attorneys Can Help
We are well-versed in all aspects of a lien, having represented both lienees and lien holders. Do you need to enforce a lien after a debtor missed a payment and violated your loan contract? We can help you stay within the law as you pursue the lien and prepare to seize the related property. Do you have to defend against a lender trying to seize your property after they said you defaulted on a loan? We would be happy to review your situation and offer our legal representation in that situation, too.
Liens can even be applied to your property due to taxation issues. If the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or another federal agency is trying to complicate your life with a tax lien, then we may be able to help as well by applying our advanced legal abilities to your case.
