CA is the same on the mechanic lien. It is only for real estate.

Texas law grants to a mechanic a possessory lien to a vehicle if (1) the work is
authorized by the owner or the owner’s agent; (2) the work is actually performed; and (3)
the charge is reasonable. Obviously, then, the lien claim can be attacked by showing that
(1) the work wasn’t authorized; (2) the work wasn’t actually performed; or (3) the charge
for the work is unreasonable.

Under the current system, anyone can submit an application for a mechanic’s lien
to TxDOT. No check is made as to the accuracy of the claim, or whether the services
were actually rendered. If the paperwork appears to be in order, the state will issue a
negotiable title document to the applicant. The only way to stop the issuance of
mechanic-lien title is to file a lawsuit naming as defendants the applicant and the State of
Texas, and obtain an injunction against the issuance of the title.
Fraudulent mechanic-lien claims rank right up there with consumer bankruptcies
