I own a company that has a construction business license through the county. Im not a Gc . The company is a cleaning company originally. I was asked by a client if we could do some repairs to her home and i explained that it would be possible because my husband is a handyman .So repairs were done and the last bit was completed. She refused to pay and said we couldnt put a mechanic lien because im not licensed through home builders. So my question is now we will be going to court and her lawyer is stating i cant collect what is owed because of improper licensing. But the big thing is she knew what my company was never mislead her one bit . Everything we did fell under what a handyman is allowed to do. So here we are 6 months later and she admitted she owes the money but is refusing so now she is attempting to sue me .
