In JANUARY 2012 I contracted with H.E. Feldman & sons to build an addition on to my house. Last year I noticed that the clearances between the shower door and adjoining glass was getting smaller and smaller. Also, some of the cabinet trim was pulling away from the wall. I noticed that there were open cracks on the exterior walls where the addition was attached too the existing house. I called in a foundation settlement company and they confirmed that the addition was moving away from my home. Do I have any recourse against the builder? John Cureton...Read More

Hi, I'm a welder fabricator for a general contractor in Carson city. My employer has had numerous prevailing wage contracts that I have built a lot of stuff for. He insists that if I am not on site that I am not eligible for the prevailing wage and we weld and fabricate and try to do as many tasks as possible in the shop for our regular wage. Can you tell me exactly how this is supposed to work? I would greatly appreciate any answers. Thank you for your time ...Read More

After discussing a room addition with a contractor, he provided drawings for our approval. We verbally made adjustments but made it clear that we were seeking funding and could not make a commitment until funding was secured. The contractor stated that permits were backlogged and he would apply for one to get ahead while we waited for loan approval which we have not yet received. The contractor now would like to be reimbursed for the cost of the permit and drawings to the tune of $4500. We have not signed a contract. If we pay him for the permits and drawings he acquired can he then claim performance as a form of contract and place a mechanics lien on the property. ...Read More

Hello! We filed a lien in WA State on a property. The property owner is now ready to pay. They have asked for a waiver and release. It seems like I can do a waiver for the amount due and then when we receive payment I can file the cancellation of the lien with the county, correct? Thank you!...Read More

A lien has been recorded against owner's property by a subcontractor with no contract with the owner. Subcontractor provided a preliminary notice but failed to list the type of labor or materials he was providing in the section of the preliminary notice that asks for this information. In fact, it was blank. Does the owner have a defense to this lien claim?...Read More
