Service Company Can’t File Mechanic’s Lien Against Association
Facts: A condominium association signed three service agreements with a company that provided management, security, and property services. According to the contracts, the company was to provide standard residential cleaning, maintenance, and concierge services to all common areas.
When the association did not pay the company, the company filed a lien against the association and more than 100 condominium units. The trial court granted a judgment without a trial in the company's favor and foreclosed on the lien.
