My name is Joe Menth I’m with Spiral Manufacturing; I filed a pre-lien on 2-26-2019 #2205673. I recently filed the Mech lien on 9-5-2019 #2662293. I just came across some information showing that the general contractor I have listed is actually the subcontractor. I need to make this change to the lien I had filed. The lien is in South Carolina, and we are outside of the 90-day period. The sub-contractor however did make a $6,000 payment to us recently.
1. Does that open up the lien activity again so I can release the incorrect lien and file a new one?
2. If I can’t, I would still need to file an amendment to the lien to change the general contractor and then the sub-contractor. How will the county file the amendment? Which way is the best approach this problem?
The place the work was done was in Graniteville SC, the General Contractor (Tann Corp) is in Kaukauna, WI, and the Sub Contractor (Rendeq) is in Burlington, NC.
Rendeq has paid $30,000 down and the $6,000 for our past due request of payment. Rendeq still owes us 78,898.83 from their bill. We also have a fee we can add on for 18% interest for past due accounts.
Currently I believe all 3 parties are in court about the job being done. Graniteville Special Fabrics has them in court for not completing the project and has paid everyone for the job. Tann Corp is there for paying the majority of the job to Rendeq and not finishing the work. Rendeq is also there because they are still owed money from Tann Corp. We would like our labor/material cost involved in the court also. That is why after finding out all of this info I need to change the lien to have it correct for the court.
As a follow up question; do you guys offer legal assistance in these cases? If you do, what kind of assistance do you provide and do you have a flat rate fee or what are the terms.
