I am a general contractor who works for a bigger general contractor. Over the last six months we have done 150 jobs. They are slow paying me and I want to put liens or at least premiums on the last 45 homes that I have worked on. If they pay the bill on the last 45 homes can I keep the lien paperwork active while I push them to get payment on the other 105 houses ?.. we are in Sac Ca.
