Mechanic’s Lien Extension – $500+

In New York, a Mechanic’s Lien is valid for one (1) year from the date of filing. Extensions are available as follows:

  • One Family Home: two (2) extensions are available. Both require a signed court order to extend the mechanic’s lien. We charge $1,500 + Filing Fees for a court ordered extension.
  • All Other Property (not a one family home): three (3) extensions are available. The first is as of right and the last two (2) require signed court order to extend the mechanic’s lien. We charge $500 + filing fees for the “as of right” extension and $1,500 + Filing Fees for the court ordered extension.

In New Jersey a Mechanic’s lien is valid for one (1) year and CANNOT be extended. The deadline runs not from the date of filing, but from the date services were last performed. The deadline can also be shortened if any party serves a notice requiring the claimant to commence an action. Once such a notice is served, you have thirty (30) days to commence foreclosure.
