A licensed contractor filed a Lien using solely an email estimate. The estimate does not include all the negotiated items. There was no signed contract. The agreements was oral and only some portion of the work was complete before the contractor abandoned the project. ...Read More

I'm a subcontractor in Colorado and I filed a Notice to extend time in which to file lien on a project in November of 2021 which extends 6 months after filing or 4 months after substantial completion date. So the project substantial completion was 10/8/2021 so my question is can I file another notice to extend time in which to file lien in February or do I have to file the lien in February? Thank you, Carol...Read More

Hello, I had agreed to paying $175 to swap out an exhaust fan in my bathroom. When the contractor arrived, he investigated and found he was unable to swap out the vent without ripping out my entire ceiling, He was at my house from 9:40Am-10:36AM so I contacted the company to pay the hourly rate and trip charge instead of the $175 since the project wasn't completed. They were very upset that I didn't want to pay the entire amount and have now said they are putting a mechanics lien on my home. Is this something they can do? I feel i was very reasonable and level headed. ...Read More

I hired a builder to build a house for me. I sent him $100,000 and he has done nothing in 11 months, he faked the survey and was denied the well and septic permit because of it. Now he has spent the money. Can I file a lien on his place of business or his house? ...Read More

in a situation where we did emergency tarping with a contract for roof repairs, but the homeowner went with another contractor before we could start work, would the deadline for filing a contractor's lien be 60 days from when the tarping was completed, or from when we were notified that they went with another contractor? Does a notice of intent to lien extend that deadline at all? I'm getting conflicting answers on various websites ...Read More

I have a lien in the next county against me, it is a district court lien valid for ten years that is 12 years old. I went to the clerk of court and asked to have it removed, she told me no she would not do that get a lawyer. I cannot find an authority to push at this clerk to make her do her job, AND don't really want to invest in a court challenge. So how do I make the clerk do her job? She admits the lien expired but says I have to go to the creditor to get a release....Read More

I have filled a mechanics lean against a customer that decided that he wanted the job for free. I filed that lean in 2019 and Levelset did it for me. Obviously, something happened that this customer had his Lawyer contact me saying that his customer is prepared to satisfy the lean and that I should write a satisfaction letter and put it in escrow. So my question is how do you write a satisfaction letter?. Are there form letter that I can make use of? How do you put in a letter in escrow? Additionally, I would like to find out if by law I am allowed to charge the customer the fees that I incurred to create this lean and if I am allowed to calculate and charge interest on the money that is outstanding since 2019. Looking forward to your reply. Sincerely I Thaler ...Read More

We are a subcontractor of a sub., project located in Florida. Due to error on our part, we failed to file a notice to owner when we started a job in May 2021. We finished our portion in December 2021. I saw on your website that a sub of a sub can still file a "NTO" provided the Contractor and Subcontractor have not been paid in full. Does this also give us lien rights provided we now send a NTO and they have not receive their final payment. ...Read More

I was working on originating new financing for a client in North Carolina. We have a fee agreement in place and after 6 months of work, client abruptly canceled the entire loan 4 days from closing without any explanation. We have since not been able to speak or get the client on the phone to determine or understand the situation but our agreement does have a 'breakup clause' that in the event you are approved, which the client was, and you change your mind and don't close the loan, you owe a break up fee. We are seeking to simply file a brokers lien on the commercial properties to protect our interest. ...Read More
