Thank you so much for answering my question of $76k invoice, Mr. Erikson! Sorry it's not a homestead, it's my small rental medical office building in DFW area, I am currently not living in Texas. Will this make a difference? We documented the building condition this weekend, it was worse than we thought. The contractor also sent the invoice to a lien agency (?), they have been sending threats (to sue us and file lien, etc.) non-stop since last Week. 3 local contractors have told me they removed way too much from the building....Read More

My small property got water damage during the Feb. freeze, the mitigation contractor my broker found sent in a quote of $20k, I agreed, but during the migration, my broker called and said it would be much more, but didn’t say how much more. Them, I got an invoice for $76k for 4 days work. Later we found that they rape off everything below 4 feet, all floor/drywall/cabinets/sinks/expensive medical faucets/toilets/granite countertops and threw away, but the water damage was only a few inches. We asked for a more reasonable price to pay but they refused, we did not every agree with the $76k, could they file a lien on my property?...Read More

We have an airport construction project in which some of the labor is being performed by a local, minority company. The GC has not paid us for their work since November. Doesn't California have a prompt pay law especially for certified MBEs/DBEs/SBEs? Thank you! ...Read More

The wife was not part of the judgement and our management has decided we will release the lien on her home. Is this something you can help me with or do I have to contact the original attorney we used?...Read More

I am a homeowner and hired a handyman to install flooring, paint the interior of home, and make other renovations. The project was termed a "turn-key" operation. Our oral contract was that I would pay 4-6K$ in labor over a 6-8 week period. There was a 2 week delay with plumbing but even with the delay, the handyman was just sitting around and not installing flooring or painting in rooms such as the bedrooms and utility room. There were no discussions of renegotiating the contract, only excuses as to why things couldnt be completed. I have paid $4000 in labor and $4,675 in materials cost. Now the handyman is threatening to file a mechanics lein for $4,000 dollars in materials. ...Read More

I received a Notice to Owner from the tile supplier my contractor chose to use on my home project. The NTO came after the 45 day window, but before the 90 Lien claim window. Does this make the lien invalid because it was after the 45 day NTO window, or should I still be concerned? Final payment to the contractor has not been paid as the project is still ongoing. ...Read More
