    Liens-Construction Complaints

    A contractor may place a lien on your property if you do not pay the bill. Subcontractors can also place a lien on your property if the general contractor has not paid him. Homeowners have an Affirmative Defense (meaning the lien is not enforceable) if the homeowner can provide proof that the contractor has been paid in full. Please refer to Colorado Revised Statute 38-22-102(3.5) and 38-22-113 for more details. Refer to the statutes by accessing the Colorado General Assembly website, View exit disclaimer policy page for links to third-party websites. select the “Statutes and Session Law” link in the left navigation field, then "Colorado Revised Statutes and Constitution.”
