Lien Law Online eLert for 7/9/2013 - Virginia

July 9, 2013 “Effective July 1, 2013, lien claimants which provided labor for the construction of an improvement will not be entitled to a lien unless it held a valid license or certificate from the Virginia Board of Contractors in the proper class of license for the value of the work performed. The way the statute is written, the claimant must have the license when the work is performed. It will not be sufficient to obtain a license after the work is performed but before the lien is filed.” John S. Morris, III, Esquire (Contributing Author) Beale, Davidson, Etherington & Morris, P.C.
