Legal for contractor to file lien for non-payment

A subcontractor’s move to file a lien on a construction site following a dispute over payment is a legal option in this type of situation, Toronto real estate lawyer Lisa Laredo tells City News.

As the report notes, the subcontractor filed a lien on a Leslie Street construction site, where it was working on the streetcar tracks. Although the TTC isn’t responsible for the lien, the construction company in charge of the project says it hasn’t been paid by the TTC, so it, in turn, will not pay its subcontractor.

The lien also somehow included 100 private properties.

Laredo says the lien is legal.
