Home owner says that he is going to deduct 1200.00 from final payment to equal the rent he didnt get to collect due to me being late getting finished , there was nothing put on paper saying we agreed on this . there was a contract saying i would be done by a certain date which i was not done by I was about a month late , but thst was because he kept adding jobs appx 20 more tasks to be done and not adding any more time to my deadline, there was also extra unseen work that needed to be done that was not visable until partly through the job . can he do this ? And if he does with hold can i file a mechanics lien for the full amt of money im owed? Also what if he says well im not paying you cause things werent do e to his satisfactory ?
