Am I in my right to apply payments to customer outstanding balance who sent me payments for a recent lien?
Hi, I need help with a problem. I have a customer who we have at least 11 jobs that we completed totaling $57,405.51. Six of the jobs were completed but I have not receive payment for and those jobs are over 90 days old. One Job I have already lien and two others I have sent intent to lien. The customer sent me a payment of $16,784 which covers one of the lien properties and two properties with intent to lien. The customer wish for me to remove the lien and retract the intent to liens. I rather apply the payments toward the oldest charges and to keep the lien on the property until the customer settle up the old debt. I am within my rights to do this?
