An Alaska mechanic’s lien is a legal document used by general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers to collect payment for unpaid work performed on a property. By placing a lien on the estate, the worker files a public claim against the property in the amount they are owed. This action hinders the owner’s ability to sell or refinance the property, as lenders and buyers are often unwilling to move forward on a property until all liens are cleared. While the vast majority of liens are paid before foreclosure occurs, if left unpaid, the contractor can escalate the lien to a lawsuit.

Although recommended, Alaska law does not require contractors to send a preliminary notice at the start of their work. Once the claimant completes the lien and has their signature notarized, they will need to have the form recorded at the county recorder’s office.
