The Construction Lien Act does not specifically refer to salvage costs. However, the practice of awarding salvage costs is one of long standing. Salvage costs are payable out of the lien fund in priority to the claims and costs of the other lien claimants for services provided to the class of lien claimants for their collective benefit, as opposed to work done solely for the benefit of one or more lien claimants.
