Connecticut mechanic’s lien form is used as a legal means to collect payment from a property owner or contractor who has defaulted on their contract to pay for materials or labor. By recording a mechanic’s lien with the town clerk, the person seeking payment claims an interest in the owner’s property for an amount equal to the value of the materials furnished or labor rendered.

After a lien has been placed on a property, anyone interested in buying the land or real estate will be informed that there is an unsettled debt attached to the title that could affect their ability to purchase, therefore making it difficult for the sale to go through. Because of this obstacle, sellers often need to pay off the lien before transferring ownership of their property.
