About this Program

Mechanic’s liens are a powerful tool in New York to secure monies due contractors and others who provide labor and materials to improve real property. Accomplished speakers and practitioners Kenneth Block and John-Patrick Curran provide viewers with an exhaustive discourse on the use of mechanic’s liens on both public and private improvements, as well as the steps that owners may take to respond to the liens. They will begin by discussing general principles and qualified lienors, and will proceed with an examination of work covered, lienable property, enforcement and defense, and other items of import. They conclude by illuminating trust funds and foreclosure proceedings.

Opal

The course was jam-packed with information that was presented in a thorough and clear/understandable way, and the speakers' enthusiasm for the topic (which, for me, was a very dry one) made it palatable and even interesting.

One of your best courses. The instructors did not waste time with stories. They were experts in this area of the law and hit the key points in an efficient manner. In fact, the course could have been longer.
