I received a lien notice for my firm, and I'm wondering if I need to worry about it. We are the structural engineering firm for a residential project that required a LOT of steel. The steel provider sent us a lien notice, but we have no interest in the property. We did work for the general contractor, who is not paying the steel supplier. Should I be worried about the steel supplier who threatened a lien coming after my company, or me personally? Or is their only recourse to attach a lien to the property?
