Filing a Design Professional Lien

A design professional lien can be placed against a property when money is owed to an architect, engineer, designer (such as an interior designer), or land surveyor.

In order to file a lien:

  • A building permit or other governmental approval must have been obtained
  • There must be a written contract between the design professional and the property owner
  • The owner must have defaulted on payments or refused to pay in accordance with the written contract
  • The design professional must make a written demand for payment which must be mailed by registered or certified first-class mail, postage prepaid
  • You must be licensed and your license must not have lapsed at any time during the period in which you were involved in the project
