As a single family home owner I hired a contractor to finish my basement. The current balance I owe the contractor is 0. The contractor failed to pay his subcontracted company (granite install, installed 08/13/2021) for the work performed. The granite install company is now wanting to file a mechanics lien on my property. Does he have the right to do so?...Read More

I am a contractor (1099) that works in the entertainment field as an audio visual technician / stagehand. There is one company that I have already emailed my invoice to for a job that has already been completed and I have not been paid yet. The hiring manager of the company calls me to say they can not honor to pay me the amount I have invoiced them for. The job I completed is called a "strike", a strike consist of 4-5 hours max of work. The rate agreed upon is $150 for that amount of time, any time beyond 4-5 hours I charge a full "setup" rate of $300. A "setup" consist of no more than 10 hours of work. The strike was 7 hours of work and I invoiced the company for a full setup rate because it went well over the agreed upon time I had agreed to work.

For Retainage are you limited to the 90 day for Filing a Lien in Florida? We have a job that was Bonded and a Hud job that we've been told repeatedly that the owners and Hud had not signed off on for retainage to be released. We had personally changes in the office and were not sure when the project was actually approved for retainage billing. After several months of being given the run around from the GC about the status of the retainage we submitted a lien. Now we have been contacted from an Attorney of the Owners stating that we can't file this lien due to the time frame of when we were last on the project. However the project was not closed out until after 8 months of when we were on site and it was released to bill retainage. ...Read More

Levelset filed a lien for us and listed an incorrect Owner. They listed a company with a similar name as the Owner. Our deadline has passed to file a lien on the correct Owner. Should I just have them amend the current lien? Will that be sufficient to ensure there is no recorded lien against the incorrect Owner? ...Read More
