Special lien rule; a note for horse owners


Dealing with liens on any of your property can be difficult and frustrating.  However, the emotions may be even greater if the lien is placed on your animals. 


Understanding the special lien rule is important if you board animals. As a general rule, one who operates a livery or stable for horses shall have a lien against the animals for the amount of the reasonable charges of the services provided.  This lien remains until the amount due and owing is paid.  Unfortunately for the animal’s owner, they may retain the possession of the animals and even sell the same to pay the lien. It is very important to keep this in mind when boarding your animals so as you don’t end up losing them due to a lien.

 If you are a stable owner and are having trouble with a boarder not paying their fees, I can assist you in creating liens on their animals.  Having a lien will hopefully help you to recover some of your money lost to unpaid boarding fees.
