The NCS Lien Index Q1 2022
The Lien Index’s rate of increase slowed from an adjusted +22% in Q4 2021 to +13% in Q1 2022.
Although the rate of increase declined, mechanic’s lien activity increased nationally, as expected. Inflation adds tremendous strain, piling on to existing frustrations surrounding material and labor shortages and supply chain issues.
