how much can I claim for lien given the unpaid change orders and scope?
My question the homeowner refused to pay for change orders. Paid majority of original contract. Made unreasonable demands in the end when they got into some other financial problems ie. another property sale fell thru.
Can I file for the difference on what they paid and the added scope and change orders i.e. things I did not charge them for or at a discounted price? They okayed the change orders and it was in the contract. The contract was at an estimated amount with caveats and we came in within 10-15% with damages unknown originally.
Reason I ask is if all I can claim is the balance of final payment and not the other charges and impacts I am not going to do it. But if I can claim for all legit unpaid and incurred charges it would be worth it.
