HB 343 -- Design Professional Mechanic's Liens
This bill gives a design professional a lien on the property and improvements, whether or not construction has commenced, if the design professional contracted with the owner or proprietor and that person was owner or proprietor of the property at the time of the contract or the time the lien was filed. Such lien will be on an equal footing with other mechanic's liens for that property, and divided pro rata, regardless of their filing dates.
The bill also repeals the provision allowing a corporation engaged in the practices of architecture, engineering, or land surveying to meet its registration requirement by having a corporate officer and majority stockholder registered as an individual.
