  • Contractor Liens The Magic Kingdom Castle (merged)

    I found this story kinda comical... What would've/could've happened if things went sour...

    Liens for construction are very common.

    I wonder what address was listed on the lien? 100 Main Street, Bay Lake, FL ?

      It was listed in documents as "1400 MAGIC KINGDOM DRIVE a/k/a MAGIC KINGDOM CINDERELLA'S CASTLE"

      But yeah, this is really not as uncommon as you'd think.

        you never hear about it though so when news comes out that theres a lein against Cinderells Castle it could cause alarm amongst people who dont know its common.

              A lien is something someone/anyone can take out against your car or home if you owe them moeny.

              I don't know what you need to do to prove this person or company owes you money but once you have a lien on your house or car you can't sell it without paying off the person or company who has taken out the lien.

                  And a reason you should always ask if any subcontractors are being used... You pay the Contractor, but Contractor doesn't pay sub... and puts lien on your property.

                    Exactly, it wouldn't make nearly as much money as simply demolishing it and selling the rubble in keepsake boxes ala MSEP bulbs or Matterhorn stone.

                      Never say never. For money, Disney would sell a lot of things.

                        Contractor Liens The Magic Kingdom Castle

                        http://www.local6.com/news/10966001/detail.html
                        ORLANDO, Fla. -- A lien has been filed against the crown jewel of Disney's Magic Kingdom -- Cinderella's Castle -- Local 6 News reported Thursday.

                        Specialty Products and Insulation told Local 6 News that it's owed money for materials that they provided for the castle's recent makeover.

                        To ensure that a contractor will pay them, the company filed a construction lien for $3,984.87 against Magic Kingdom Cinderella's Castle.

                        ...

                        Disney officials told Local 6 News that the subcontractor in this instance had no legal right to stake a claim on Cinderella's Castle, and the lien is in the process of being withdrawn.
                        I got a big kick out of this story. One of my professional claims for fame back in the day was when I got a foreclosure JUDGMENT against the San Diego Zoo on precisely the same kind of lien. These rarely go to judgment. In my case, the Zoo paid the judgment right away, so we we're never able to actually sell the property.

                        Here, I wouldn't be surprised at all if the lien is perfectly valid, but Disney or the contractor can bond around it, and Disney has every right to demand that the general contractor pay this supplier immediately and sue the supplier separately if it thinks the money isn't due.
