I have a contractor who was paid for remediation following Uri back in March. It took him 5 months to provide my insurance company with an estimate for remediation and 6 for the whole job. During the last 6 months my house has been unliveable, so I've spent 7 months in a hotel due to his less that quality and not to code work. Now he is demanding my remediation check be given to him after he has destroyed my personal property, I have to repair all him mistakes, associated with structure, plumbing and electrical. Now he is threatening a lein. I need to block that bogus lein....Read More

I hire a handy man to renovate my bathroom and I gave him some upfront money. Now he finish the job with several flaws, damage to my bathroom floor and some thing he did not replace like we deal on the verbal contract. I told him to come to my house sitting down to discuss and I would like to have some money back before I pay my last part of the deal. He denial to get money and he told me he will put the lien on my property. What I have to do for protecting my home record? and may I sue him about that after I know he would put the lien on my house? Thank you....Read More

I am a subcontractor who worked for 8 months on several properties for an owner/realtor. There was never a contract. I sent in invoices for each property and he showed up once a week and had me sign a partial check and handed me cash. I did sign a W9 Tax form in the beginning. My Invoices equal $29,000 and he only paid me $16,000 total. Now he has let me go without paying the remaining of the invoices. How can I go about this getting paid....Read More

We have been working on a project for about 9 months now. The bulk of our work is complete and most of our labor has been done but we need a part to complete. The part has been delayed for some time due to the manufactures delays because of Covid, etc. The customer has been kept aware of the parts status and has been in agreement that we will finish as soon as we receive part. We have been working in house to to obtain part by regularly checking with supplier on status and have updated customer within the last 30 days. We have also been in contact with and updated another contractor that was to be involved on the completion of the project. We may not have actually been to the worksite in over 90 days but certainly have continued effort and were ready to complete project when part was delivered. The customer notified us a few days ago by email that he wants to cancel the project stating that his permits were denied on his farm project where we did the work. He is not willing to pay us for the labor that has already been done. Do we still have legal lien rights? Thankyou...Read More

We had an oral agreement, backed by many emails to and from, with a contractor who was unable to perform the work he promised to do. We fired him and he left the job on April 30, 2021. He had no contact with the owner of the house, who is my daughter, until she sent him 2 payments on June 1, 2021. On August 16, 2021, a letter and copy of a Mechanics Lien was sent to our address, which is not my daughter's address. There was no "notice of intent to file lien" sent to anyone. We sent a very detailed response to the contractor's lawyer telling him why we do not owe the contractor anything. We already paid him $12,815.58. The contractor sent an invoice on May 19, 2021 asking for payment for punch-list items that were actually done by the contractor who replaced him and 2 other vendors. He gave credit for $12,000.00 even though we sent receipts for the $12,815.58 that he was already paid. We also sent copies of the proposal from the contractor who replaced him, showing the work the new contractor performed - the same work that the claimant contractor wants to be paid for. What do I need to do to file a motion to vacate his frivolous mechanic's lien in Lake County, IL? My daughter's house is now on the market for sale. How long will it take the court to vacate this lien?...Read More

Hello, We are trying to get more info about the process of filing a lien on a home. We are a subcontractor that was hired by a contractor to do work on a home. The contractor has been paid in full by the homeowner but the contractor has not paid us. He was past 180 days over due. When we file a lien do we need to put the homeowners name or contractor? A few things to add: When we started the project we did NOT have the contractor sign any agreement (mistake on our part I know) We do have proof of the work completed such as pictures,texts , and emails. The GC has stated he was paid in full so we know that....Read More

I am a licensed public adjuster and general contractor in Illinois. I have a written PA contract promising me 30% of the loss payout. Once the claim was settled, the homeowner asked me to order the window so we would not have to wait on it even before the check arrived, which I did. Now they are avoiding me and I suspect they were able to cash and pocket the insurance proceeds. Can I file a mechanics lien on the entire amount owed or just for the window ordered....Read More

I am the home owner. I have been verbally notified that the electrical subcontractor may file a lien because he has not been paid by the prime contractor. I have paid the prime contractor for the full electrical work. The work was completed last February, so the time to file has expired. How do I contest this lien filing?...Read More
