How long does a lien stay on your property in Ontario?

In Ontario, a construction lien is valid for a period of 90 days from the date that it is registered on the property. During this 90-day period, the lienholder can take legal action to enforce the lien and recover the amount owed for their work or materials.

However, if the lienholder does not take legal action within this 90-day period, the lien will expire and become invalid. In order to extend the validity of a construction lien, the lienholder must take legal action within the 90-day period to preserve their lien rights.

It is important to note that even if a construction lien has expired, the lienholder may still have legal remedies available to them, such as filing a claim against the property owner or pursuing legal action for breach of contract or unjust enrichment.
