Nebraska Construction Lien

Nebraska Construction Lien Information

Securing a Nebraska Construction Lien

Construction liens are governed under the Nebraska Construction Lien Act, found at Sections 52-125 to 52-159 of the Nebraska Revised Statutes.

A lien is a legal right or interest in property, held by a creditor until the debtor pays the amount due on account. Construction liens are often used to persuade an owner or other party to pay a contractor the balance owed for work on real property. For instance, if a contractor who completed a project is waiting for payment, a lien might make sense. Because liens prevent an owner from selling or refinancing a property (or make it difficult to do so), they offer an effective remedy for contractors and other eligible parties.

A claimant may record a lien which shall be signed by the claimant and state: (a) The real estate subject to the lien, with a description thereof sufficient for identification; (b) The name of the person against whose interest in the real estate a lien is claimed; (c) The name and address of the claimant; (d) The name and address of the person with whom the claimant contracted; (e) A general description of the services performed or to be performed or materials furnished or to be furnished for the improvement and the contract price thereof; (f) The amount unpaid, whether or not due, to the claimant for the services or materials or if no amount is fixed by the contract a good faith estimate of the amount designated as an estimate; and (g) The time the last services or materials were furnished or if that time has not yet occurred, an estimate of the time. Neb. Rev. Stat. 52-147(1).

In Nebraska, construction liens are recorded with the county recorder's office within the bounds of the county where the property is located. A recorded lien remains enforceable for two (2) years after its recordation. Neb. Rev. Stat. 52-140. Note that in addition to the statutory content requirements, the lien form must meet all state and local standards for recorded documents.
