Preserve your lien rights, file your lien claims and issue lien releases with these ready-made Lien Forms for BC contractors and suppliers.


Builders, subtrades, suppliers, engineers and architects can file a lien under the British Columbia Builders Lien Act for work, materials, or equipment supplied for improvements (construction, repairs or renovations) to real property.

If, after filing your lien claim, you still have not received payment from the owner or general contractor, you have 1 year from the date you filed the lien to start a lawsuit in BC Supreme Court to enforce the lien. You must also file a certificate of pending litigation in the Land Titles Office at the time you commence the lawsuit. If you fail to do either of these things within that 1-year period, your lien is no longer enforceable.
