Lien Law Online eLert for 4/16/2014 - Mississippi
April 15, 2014
Please note that on April 11, 2014, Mississippi enacted a new lien law that extends lien rights to subcontractors, materials suppliers, and sub-subcontractors and material suppliers to subcontractors (http://billstatus.ls.state.ms.us/documents/2014/pdf/SB/2600-2699/SB2622SG.pdf). The new law also has a much shorter "window" within which to file a lien and suit to enforce a lien. Finally, the new law includes owner defenses and statutory lien waivers.
A revised Mississippi chapter will be available soon. We will notify you as soon as the updated chapter is posted.
