Can I file a mechanic lien?

CaliforniaCash Flow

I am a subcontractor. I finished this job 5 months ago and I still haven't gotten paid the remaining balance due. I have late fees and sometimes they don't pay the late fees as well. They said they would pay me but it's been a month and I haven't heard from them anymore. I was wondering what I could do?

As a subcontractor, you have 30 days from recordation of a Notice of Completion (NOC) to record a lien, or 90 days after completion of the project (not just your scope of work, but the entire work of improvement) if no NOC is recorded. You must file suit within 90 days of recording the lien. Good luck.
