I live in Tex. I had a contractor back in 2007 damage the material before he brought it out to be installed. it was still installed. Also he did not go by the plans/blueprints so the city shut down the job. To say the least it was a disaster. I told him I would not pay him for this. About 6 months pasts and he had filed a mechanics lien on my property while I was out of the country. When I returned, I had my attorney send him a letter saying we were going to court. He sent me a letter saying that he would remove the lien. So I took his word he would do it. I have since lost the letter. The lien is still recorded on my property 9 years later. Can I and if, how can I file a removal action?
