Construction Debt

Large balance construction debt can be extremely complicated and sometimes requires legal action to extract the money you are entitled to. This is why so many BC and Alberta Law Firms rely on us to assist them in recovering construction debt.

Time is the biggest enemy when it comes to collecting construction debt. Many contractors, suppliers, development companies, sub-contractors, laborers and construction companies assume that filing a lien will ensure they get paid in full. Unfortunately, this is not the case and as a general rule, the first creditors who list a problem receivable with a collection agency are the ones who actually get paid.

In BC and Alberta a Builders Lien must be filed within 45 days after the date of substantial completion, abandonment, or end of the project.There are numerous remedies available after a lien has been filed. If the lien filing deadline has passed, the odds of collecting your debt are greatly diminished. If you have missed the filing deadline, then it is a smart business decision to list your account for immediate collection.
