Ran across this article this morning: Fewer filings of mechanic’s liens might mean good news for economy — or not
I don’t think there is anything earth shattering in the article, but it is good to see some actual numbers on Mechanic’s Liens being filed. First, you should probably take into account this is for Houston, so for other parts of the country the trend probably doesn’t apply. I would think it’s a pretty good representation for the Dallas area though.
Update: This was actually a reprint from the Louisville area. There is a Jefferson county near Houston and was reading it out of the Houston Journal so assumed it was about the Houston area…missed the part about it being a reprint.
