Baker Bricks

On Friday, April 11, 2014, Governor Bryant signed Senate Bill 2622 and thus made that bill the new construction lien law, effective immediately, applicable to public, private and residential construction works in Mississippi. We previously summarized ;the bill. The bill is located at Mississippi Statute 85-7-401 et seq. of the Mississippi Code of 1972.

Generally, the new law grants prime contractors, first tier subcontractors, and second tier subcontractors lien rights. Further, first tier materialmen and suppliers are granted lien rights for the material they supplied to the job. Finally, registered architects and professional engineers and surveyors are likewise granted lien rights.
