Are you a contractor? Have you not been paid?

Under the Construction Lien Act, you have special rights not available to other business in Ontario.

If you have a contract with the party whom you are seeking monies (this is called “privity of contact”). Under the Construction Lien Act “privity” of contract” is not required as a trade has the right to place a construction lien against the property for which they provided services and/or material.

You have to act fast!

You must register a lien within 45 days of the last date that services or materials were provided. If there is publication of a date of “substantial completion” under the provisions in a construction trade magazine, the period for registering a lien can be even shorter.
