Entered into a contractual agreement with new homeowner purchasing a house with a 203K construction loan. 2 Days after closing customer informs in writing via email that he will self perform 70% of the contract. We met with the owner and loan officer informing them that this is illegal and impractical, while waiting for them to get their act together we received a contract termination letter due to not starting yet. We have lost a 50k dollar job due to this action and have all the time vested lost. Can I file a mechanics lien under the circumstances? If so can I file it for the entire contract amount.
