Legal Question

Asked on: 9/16/10, 10:01 am

If I have filed a mechanics lien against my landlord for work done at the property where I live and then 9 days later the landlord starts eviction action against me, is this legal. I've heard that once I filed a mechanics lien on the property the landlord can not do a eviction. Does the mechanics lien block out the eviction? I ask the landlord about paying me the money but was ingored the month before I filed and then the next month I didn't pay the rent but told the landlord I would deduct the rent off the amount owed to me. I've been served and filed my answer.
