This is the most likely cause. It seems to be a legal hypothec taken out by the construction company. Usually they only have 30 days to take out a legal hypothec after the completion of the works to safeguard their rights on the property for the work done (articles 2724(2), 2726 and 2727 Civil Code of Quebec). It's not uncommon for this to happen since the company has such a small window of opportunity to safeguard their rights in the property. Thereafter, they have 6 months to publish the hypothec in order to give it effect. Like you said, the likely cause is Patches, or Mrs. Patches, is dissatisfied with the work. Patches himself is legally allowed to a holdback until the repairs or corrections to the work are made to the apparent defects or poor workmanship (2111 CCQ). So I doubt it's a question of money. He could easily resolve this by getting a loan if he wanted to.
