Lien was filed and served regular mail. Affirmation of service was timely served. Then, I followed with RRR service, but didn't file an affirmation on that service. And it was a few days late. Are there any defenses that can save my lien? Does the owner have to bring an action to discharge the lien? And then can I defend this? I know it sounds like a total nightmare. Thank you for helping me....Read More

Last furnishing date should generally be the last date that the equipment is on site being used. If the equipment is just lying around on site waiting to be picked up, or if their customer is no longer being charged for the use of the equipment, that generally won't serve to push the deadline back. My follow up question to this is, if our leased equipment set for 12months is returned earlier or later than the “end date” entered into Levelset, how will that effect anything? Should we still enter the term date listed on the contract into Levelset?...Read More
