A Hawaii mechanic’s lien is used by a contract worker to collect overdue payment for labor or materials from a client. A lien grants the worker a claim against the property they contributed their services to until the debt is settled. If the debt remains unpaid, they are entitled to enforce the claim and initiate a foreclosure suit, thus reclaiming the amount owed when the property is auctioned or sold. The lien is effective once it is filed with the county clerk and will allow a three (3) month period for the claimant to enforce the lien or the owner to pay the debt.

In Hawaii, claimants are required to deliver a notice of lien to the property owner along with a copy of the lien once the filing has been completed.
