We are a large cleaning company and we perform cleaning services (primarily dry cleaning, upholstery cleaning, rug cleaning, etc...) for homeowners who have experienced smoke damage and water damage. The homeowners engage us, and sign a document that authorizes us to perform the service and instructs their insurance carrier to pay us for these services we render. In many cases their insurance carriers take many months before paying us and this is very frustrating. My question is: can we lien a homeowner as a way of applying pressure to get their insurance carrier to pay us faster? Are there any rules that would prohibit, or limit, the establishment of a lien in this case? Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter!
