levelset says In Louisiana, anyone who contracts with the owner for more than $100,000 must file a Notice of Contract before the delivery of materials or labor to the project. an upset client whom we placed a lien on, directed us to websites that say "In order to secure lien rights, prior to beginning work, all general contractors must file a Notice of Contract, signed by the Owner, unless the general contractor's contract amount is less than $25,000.00. " I need to know who is correct and why there is a disparity. Is one outdated ? Is one taken out of context? ...Read More

I am a subcontractor, plumber, who had a contract with GC to rough-in, top-out & set fixtures on a new construction residential property. The plumbing permit was under our name. I did the rough-in & top-out. I returned to the job to set the fixtures, & GC's workers were installing illegally. The job was not completed by my company as contract was drawn up. We were last on the job June 25th. Have we missed the deadline date to file a Mechanic's Lien?...Read More

When a title company is processing a property sale that has a lien against it, will they contact the vendor to find out if late fees, interest, or other add-ons need to be paid off in addition to the initial amount? If further work is done and further liability by the owner is incurred, does an additional lien need to be filed or can the amount just be added when the lien is being paid off? State of Washington...Read More

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

Can I take any legal actions? The real estate agent is representing me and the builder. They originally set my closing date for January 31, 2020 but due to COVID and other delays we missed that date. The new closing date was September 14, 2021 and there is only a foundation laid. There has been no real weather delays and the builder is currently on vacation and no work is being done while is gone. I believe I may need to reserve legal representation at this point....Read More

For 3 years almost I resided and worked on a house with no rental or contract agreement but the owner bought supplies and told me to do it , also I helped buy supplies , with the idea that we were gonna fix it up and flip the home and sell it for more. Then I'd recoup my material and labor through the sell. Before project was completely finished but still almost completely remodeled home , I have pictures along the way as well as yard the owner decided to kick me out, and exclude me from sale entirely and no reimbursement of material or pay of any labor . I went to court house and was told it was probably to much money to do in small claims. Could really use some help on what steps I need to take and quickly , been researching for a week and not to clear ...Read More
