Hi, I’m already using the service but need to amend our lien amount. A portion of the claim is for work on a housing tract. In some cases the work was 100% complete. We were completing others when the builder admittedly defaulted on their obligations to pay the material vendors making impossible for my firm to complete the work already in process. Since there is no contention that we stopped work for no other reason than the Builder defaulting on payment to my firm and others to attain needed materials, are we in good standing to claim the contract amounts of the homes that were being finished at the time of the Bldrs. breach? Thanks, Marshall Pepperman
This is needed because the Bldr has contacted my counsel and wants to work a payment program to pay in increments, the delinquent amounts owed my firm. While they do not deny their actions caused my firm to to be unable to complete all the installations in a few units, we want to be sure we can claim all the units we were in, ordered goods for and completed significant portions of the work on. Or if we can even claim the total of the contract price on partial installs with language that we we complete when paid.
