Gaines & Company, Inc. v. Wendell Falls Residential, LLC A plaintiff that provided labor and materials for a wastewater pump station and a gravity sewer outfall at a residential subdivision now owned by Wake County cannot enforce its materialmen lien rights against the County. Gaines and Company, Inc., (Gaines) waived its materialmen’s lien rights prior to a conveyance of real property to Wake County, nor did it allege a contractual relationship between it and Wake County for work performed after the conveyance. Moreover, materialmen’s liens on public bodies and buildings are prohibited by statute. Therefore, Gaines may not enforce a lien on Wake County property. We affirm the trial court’s order granting summary judgment to Wake County.
