The contractor for our solar project filed 2 liens on our home in January of 2022. He was paid in full for the contract amount in October of 2021 by our finance company without our approval. We had a change order for 4500.00 and I am assuming that is what the lien is for. We were given an intent to lien letter but that is all. We never received an actual lien and I didnt worry about it because he was paid. None of the project is 100% complete. We rescheduled several appointments with the utility company for switching the power to new panel. He says we are in breach of contract for preventing him from finishing. The panel he installed was a 100 amp and the change order upgrades it to a 225 amp panel. He continually lies and I need to know what I can do about it. He is trying to make us sell our home to pay him. We have already filed a complaint with the contractors state license board and now we received a law suit in the mail. This guy is off the hook. Can he do this legally?? Take our home??...Read More

Hi I'm a subcontractor, i received a demand for payment notice of claim for defense and indemnity. Its stating here that we did all the electrical work which we didn't. We never went on contract or sign any contract with the contractor, we did just minor work for one day only and got paid cash. We gave him a quote to be in contract with him for the rest of the job, but it never happened he must've no like the price. But we have nothing signed with this contractor stating we did all this work stated in the exhibits. ...Read More

We are homeowners in Lake Worth who contracted with a licensed roofer to re roof our house. The old roof was removed and hot mopped on January 5, 2022. Six months later the roof still has no tiles and the contractor is claiming supply chain issues and hasnt offered any other tile choices. Meanwhile we are concerned that the roof underlayment has been compromised being exposed to the elements for 6 months. The contractor claims the underlayment is fine and the tile delivery date is still unknown. There has been very little communication (updates) initiated by the contractor and we have paid 93% of the total contract price and still have no roof! Please advise should we hire an attorney to push this to the finish line?...Read More

I was a subcontractor for a project under a GC who was under a 'Master GC / CM'. The GC for whom we worked did a horrible job. They were kicked off of the job. We requested to be released prior to that GC being fired by the Master GC / CM and were supposed to come to terms on our final payment. We're extended several hundred thousand just to get back what we spent prior to our exit. The Master GC / CM sent me a copy of the GC's bond and told me to make a claim against it. ...Read More

My HOA is threatening a mechanics lien against my property (a condo which I own), for a new roof they had put on every building, and charging a $1500 assessment to every owner in the complex, without anyones consent or prior notice or approval. The HOA bylaw state approval must be sought by the owners prior to an assessment. The HOA claims it was an emergency. Which is was not, the roof replacement has been on the horizon and listed on the upcoming “funds needed” list for more than ten years now. Yet-the HOA used one persons water pipe bursting and leaking as an excuse that ‘the roof’ was the culprit and therefore needed to be replaced immediately. Causing the HOA to issue a non-approved or legally made assessment on the owners. The owners refusing or unable to pay, are now threatened with mechanics liens on their property. Suggestions? Thoughts? Advice? ...Read More

Location: Tennessee My GC completed the remodel of my residence approximately 10 months ago and is fully paid. I (homeowner) received notice from the HVAC contractor that they intend to file a lien against my property due to non payment of the final bill from the GC. 1. Can they do this since I did not contract with them directly 2. Isn't the time limit to file a lien over (HVAC contractor was last on property in Oct 2021 for a service call) or are they given a longer period for some reason...Read More

We are a subcontractor providing custom acrylic panels for a pool in California. Our contract clearly states, payment in full prior to ship and the client is now saying they won't pay until it's delivered. We are complete with the production side of it but are holding onto the acrylic for now. Is filing the preliminary notice the best way to go? I don't know if we have met the following. Not sure what is meant by "claimant ceases to provide work." The mechanics lien deadline for parties hired by someone other than the owner is set out by § 8414 of the California Civil Code: “(a) After the claimant ceases to provide work. (b) Before the earlier of the following times: (1) Ninety days after completion of the work of improvement. (2) Thirty days after the owner records a notice of completion or cessation.”...Read More
