Unfortunately disputes arise between property owners and contractors which may result in a lien filing. A Louisiana mechanic's lien release bond is a legal mechanism which "bonds off" a lien on a parcel of real property. Under Louisiana law, a mechanic's lien may be filed by general contractors, subcontractors, laborers, materialsmen and equipment suppliers. Professional service providers such as architects, engineers, and surveyors, as well as the professional subconsultants of these parties can impose a lien as can lessors of equipment if leased to the property owner, contractor or subcontractor under written lease. Louisiana law also provides a special provision for persons supplying fuel used for construction machinery.
The Louisiana mechanic's lien discharge bond effectively relieves both the individual owner and the property parcel encumbered by the lien. The surety bond must be written in an amount of no less than one and one quarter (125%) of the lien amount. Proper preparation/manuscripting is necessary as Louisian is the only state that allows subcontractors and material suppliers to commence action against a property owner although a direct contract may not exist between them.
