Construction Lien Law in Washington: Alternative Dispute Resolution
Obtaining payment from a lien involves filing a lien with the county recorder, filing a lien
foreclosure action in court, obtaining a favorable judgment from the judge, and then foreclosing (or using the threat thereof) on real property to collect payment. In order to enforce (i.e. foreclose) a lien, you will always be involved in some form of Superior Court proceeding. That is because only a Superior Court judge can direct a county sheriff to conduct a foreclosure sale at
public auction. However, there are some alternatives to using the courtroom to debate the issues and contentions that separate the parties. Dispute resolution approaches such as arbitration, mediation and facilitation offer some alternatives for resolving the underlying lien claim outside of the courtroom.
