Can I file a lien on a home without the wife’s signature on the contract?
I contracted a roof replacement, metal carport, wooden deck, and gutters. The homeowners are not satisfied with the work, though I have had each trade repaired or redone and made many attempts to discount and/or redo all the minor complaints they have. They seem to not be able to satisfy. Before work was started, I had homeowner sign a contract, one page included 5% retainage rights. The homeowner is holding the remaining 50% of the funds owed instead, and some of my guys working there have heard him say he doesn’t plan on paying it at all. He is married and the wife lives there too, but I did not get her signature on any of the paperwork. Can I still file a lien?
