Lien Account Law and Legal Definition

Lien account means a statement of claim that fairly declares the amount and nature of a demand asserted under a lien, to the owner and public. A lien account will not be void for want of a date set opposite each item, if it clearly appears that the items were furnished between the given dates within the proper time. Also, a lien account need not have the definiteness of a pleading [Mitchell Planing-Mill Co. v. Allison, 138 Mo. 50, 58 (Mo. 1897)].
