I contracted with a flipper to remodel a home in the Sacramento area. My contracted provided for me to be paid $3k every Friday during the project. The original estimate for work and labor was $25K. Right after getting started there were several problems that added time to the project. Based on the structure of my contract change orders were not written; verbal consent from the client was obtained. His verbal agreement and a check every Friday kept us moving forward. Nearly upon completion the client told me he was running out of money and that he was having to pay interest to his brother, whom her borrowed the remodel funds from. At the beginning of this project I had a prepaid vacation scheduled three weeks after the expected completion date. Unfortunately due to the complications we ran up against my vacation. The client told me he was out of money and wrote in the note section of the last check he wrote me "final payment." He asked me to help him finish the project; that he was out of funds for this home, but that he could pay me to remodel the master bath in his other home and that he wanted to get started on another flip right away. I told him that if he could paint the interior while I was away, that I would help him finish up. All that was left was setting the kitchen cabinets, installing the counter tops, hanging the doors and lights as well as the trim. This was roughly a weeks worth of work. When I returned from my vacation the client chose to paint the exterior of the residence instead of the interior. He changed the countertop from a remanufactured one to granite right before I left. I told him we could still get this done with his help. I painted the kitchen and got him started on the rest of the residence while I installed he cabinetry and granite. When I finished the cabinetry he decided to change all of the electrical outlets. I stopped and explained to him how to do it and then had to assist him loosing a half day. He then asked me to install tile in the bathrooms. We had agreed on laminate. He also asked for additional canned lighting in the hall. I told him all of these extras where not within our original agreement and that he was going to have to pay me. He said he didn't have any more funds, but once again promised the master bath remodel immediately following completion of this project if I'd help him finish. I told him I had to pay my rent and that I would have to take another job and come back and finish this one. He said he could pay me a thousand to stay and finish and I told him no, that wouldn't cover my rent. He reluctantly agreed and I took the other job. Upon completion I contacted him to help him finish and start his master bath remodel. He informed me that he had obtained "reliable" help to complete the project and would not be using me any more. I sent him a final bill for $3,600 for the six days I worked after he violated the terms of our agreement. I filed and "Notice of Intent to File a Lien" through zlien. Am I in a position to file a mechanics lien?
