In Newfoundland & Labrador, liens can’t be placed on Crown land or holdbacks with the possible exemption allowing for a lien to be placed on the holdback for public streets. In their article “Newfoundland and Labrador Crown Immunity for Mechanics’ Lien Holdbacks: Three Key Risks for Subcontractors“, as published at page 6 of the Construction Law Letter (PDF), McInnes Cooper’s John O’Dea and Ken Anderson identify the three key risks for subcontractors in Crown infrastructure projects resulting from the Newfoundland and Labrador Court of Appeal’s decision in Brook Construction 2007 v. Blackwood Contractors Ltd. Reproduced with permission of the publisher LexisNexis Canada Inc. from Construction Law Letter, Vol. 32, No. 6, July/August 2016.
