I have a handyman company in Florida and contracted to remodel his personal home that was recently purchased. The individual portrayed himself as the owner and also a contractor of luxury homes. He hired us because he had other projects he was busy with and wanted his company personnel working on. There was an original scope agreement and then a scope change both . This is a $31k job, we collected a $10k deposit, and agreed to a $10k milestone payment on Aug 23rd. On Aug 25th, for no reason, he my worker off the job. We consequently filed a lien for the entire amount for breach. When we filed the lien, another individual appeared as the owner, not our perceived customer. On Oct 25, he received the lien notice and proceeded to rant about how he was going to sue us. We thought we were a Prime Contractor, now we appear to be a sub-contractor. Should we file a Notice to Owner? What a mess.......Read More

We're a supplier, and we typically include the last furnishing date on our notices. However, we're concerned that this could create problems and give the owner defenses that they would not ordinarily have. In addition, if we decide to sell this customer again for this job, will we need to serve a new preliminary notice since the notice lists a last furnishing date? ...Read More

My contractor did not follow the blue print and refuses to correct his mistake. 1. Porch was to have 4 posts, he did 6 to save cost on LVL. 2. Porch was to be 10’ wide, he did 9’ because he failed to calculate the roof pitch. 3. Windows are not centered. One window is 7” off from other window. 4. Prints call for one foot overhangs, he did none. I’m refusing to pay final payment until he corrects issues, which he refuses calling them “cosmetic” and the building passed code. ...Read More

I hired a contractor that did a terrible job and did not finished the job either. After going back and forward we reached an agreement. Some monies will be deducted to redo the job and paid for damages to the floor. We signed a final agreement - stating when final payment is deposited all jobs will be considered final and no legal action should be file against me . Monday we signed the final agreement. Tuesday morning the constractor cashes the check and that same day he process a lien on my property, with full amount to be paid, although he stated in a previous email before we meet to sign the agreement - that he will not file a lien. He is not a license contractor. What can I do when someone uses a Lien in form of retaliation when we have reached an agreement and monies has been paid....Read More

I'm a electrical contractor(owner) who recently assessed a customer project, provided a estimate and scheduled a appointment with the customer for service. The customer signed the contract and agreed to provide a down payment in the amount of $4700.00 in check form and refused to pay the dispatch fee in the amount of $29.99. A few days later the customer canceled the scheduled appointment and demanded the check down payment be returned. My office scheduled the drop off of the check in the amount of $4700.00 dollars and confirmed the check was delivered and cashed! The problem here is the customer check bounced and my check cleared without issue. Can I submit a claim for a mechanics lien without issue since this is a valid contract, materials were purchased and funds was exchanged that negatively impacted the business due to service....Read More

We failed to file and send prelim within the 20 day window, but sent prelim anyways. Our customer acknowledged the received it. Our customer is approaching 90 days past due. They have stopped communicating with us and appear to no longer intend to pay the balance due. Should we still file an intent to lien or should we send this customer to collections?...Read More
