We completed the work about three weeks ago. The general manager told us, and I have the emails for a reference, That a check would be issued following Thursday after the work is completed. The general manager will no longer return our calls or emails. The last time that we had talk to her, she said that the work order was turned in on August 26. We still have not received a check. We believe that she is lying. We cannot get a hold of the proper personnel at the corporate that handles billing or vendors/ contractors.
It sounds to me like you have a good reason for a Chapter 53 Mechanic's Lien followed by a demand letter and lawsuit in District Court of the county in which the property is located.
At the very least, if you file a lien you later find out that the check was issued and took forever through the postal system. But if you do not file a lien and she's lying to you, you lose your ability to lien against the property regardless of her statements.

How much would it cost me to file a demand letter from an attorney as well? To put some bite behind the lien paper work, so to speak?
