I was hired by a GC (originally I along with 3 other contractors were told for a referral fee and then upon completion we were told we were a subcontractor.) I submitted my bill to the client (homeowner) and his insurance company before I was told I was a subcontractor. The original contract was with the GC and the homeowner. I completed the job. That is fine if I am a sub but now I can't get the GC to pay. I went on to zlien and filed the intent to lien and the lien as it stated but now I am not sure that is correct. Do I need to file as a tier 2 contractor and file under the notice of claim of lien upon funds? I restored the homeowners home after hurricane Florence.
