Do we have lien rights if we are storing goods that our customer now owns, per our FOB terms, but has not paid for?
We are a supplier on a commercial project in TX. We created a custom ceiling for the developer/owner. Typically we ship FOB factory, with title passing at time of shipment. Occasionally, when customers are not ready to receive the goods, they will have us store them temporarily. In this case, the customer asked us to store the completed goods. We consider that title passed when we put the goods into storage, so we issued the invoice. Does TX agree with that? Can we send the preliminary notice though we still have physical possession of the specially-made goods?
