Yes. The automatic stay of the bankruptcy court prevents you from taking action against the general contractor but does not prevent you from taking action against the property owner

So does that have a high success rate?

That is an entirely different question which depends upon many factors. For example, if there is equity in the property and you have perfected your lien rights, you would have a high degree of success
