This was not a new construction job. This was emergency after hours service work to replace a 100 gallon water heater with manager approval from ownership. So there wasn't a timeline before the job to pre-lien. thank you Ben...Read More

I am the Tenant and hired a GC for the construction works. I got his conditioned waiver, in which he stated that he had paid all subcontractors, and then I paid in full the final balance. 6 months later I just learned that he did not paid some money to a subcontractor, who is threatening me with a lien. What can I do? ...Read More

Ok I am reading the updates on TN Lien Laws and I read "For home improvement contracts, additional “notice” language must actually be built into the contract between the general contractor and the owner. There are no notice requirements on such projects for parties other than direct contractors." Exactly what language needs to be updated in our contract, or what needs to be added to make sure that we are following state lien laws. I have a bunch of questions, so there will be many more to come below..... Notice of Commencement Question: The statement "Residential (Notice of Completion NOT simultaneously recorded and served): Lien and response (if applicable) required within 90 days of actual completion of project.", is this referring to Filing a Notice of Commencement and Notice of Termination at the same time. If not what does this mean? The Statement "Residential (Notice of Completion Recorded and Served): Lien and response to Notice of Completion required within 10 days of date on which Notice of Completion filed." Does this mean that once a Notice of Completion is filed, we only have 10 days to file a lien? Also are we as the General (Prime)Contrator filing the Notice of Completion or is the owner. This Statement "Yes, notice is required in Tennessee. As well as recording the Notice of Lien and Sworn Statement with the Register of Deeds in the county in which the property is located, the lien must also be given to the property owner. This may be accomplished by registered or certified mail, return receipt requested." Who sends notice to Property Owner? Is this automatically done through Levelset if lien is filed through levelset. If we file the lien through the county registers office, do they send the lien notice to the HO, or do we need to send this information to the HO? I just want to make sure that we have procedures in place for and Apex is protected fully by these procedures. As collections manager it is my responsibility to make sure this happens and just want to make sure that I am correct in doing so... ...Read More

I recent had some tile replace and base board installed in my home. The person I hired was not a licensed contractor but said he does this type of work and sent photos. He completed the tile work but workmanship is not great and is likely to fail in the near further. As for the baseboard he failed to finish and walked off the job because of a disagreement about the tile quality. He is now demanding payment but I am reluctant due to having to finish the baseboard and the quality of all work that was completed. What are my rights in this case?...Read More
