In Ontario, when a supplier or contractor provides services or materials to a construction site, it gives rise to an automatic right to lien the property if payment is not received. There are specific rules and conditions, but generally, the lien must be registered on title to the subject property within 45 days of the last significant supply of materials or of when labour was performed. It is important to consult with a knowledgeable lawyer to ensure timelines are not missed and to efficiently and accurately represent you during construction lien proceedings.
