As a homeowner, we signed contracts to have renovations to our house in Fall of 2019. Work technically began in Jan 2020, then ceased till April. Turns out the contractor had their license suspended for 3 months by the state during that time. In any case, work was provided off and on from late April till late July, though not complete per last contract signed mid May 2020. They submitted the 20 day prelim in mid August, about 25 days after last onsite date. About 190 days after prelim we have received a Notice of Claim of Lien. The "first provided services/materials date" is falsely filled with the date they were last onsite (late july, not Jan or even April when most work began). Do they have any legal standing? We believe they provided false info for the Notice of Claim so the agency would process it and bully us into an overpayment. A majority of the project was already paid for, and we would pay for what was provided but the asked amount is demonstrably more than services rendered. Thanks.
