§38-2-34. Time within which suit to enforce lien may be brought; right of other lienors to intervene.
Unless a suit in chancery to enforce any lien authorized by this article is commenced within six months after the person desiring to avail himself thereof shall have filed his notice in the clerk's office, as hereinbefore provided in this article, such lien shall be discharged; but a suit commenced by any person having such lien shall, for the purpose of preserving the same, inure to the benefit of all other persons having a lien under this article on the same property, and such persons may intervene in such suit for the purpose of enforcing their liens, in the same manner as in other chancery suits.
