Hello, I am a counter top fabricator/ installer and I haven't been paid for a project thats been going on, its been over 3 months since I was on the job site. There is a kitchen counter top that was cut short and I re-made the piece for the contractor, yet he said he will install it himself so I cannot get into the home. Im guessing its because he doesn't want my clock to restart in order for me to file a lien. Since I am not completed with the job, can I use this against him and file a preliminary lien ? I am a bit confused and trying to find advice on what to do.
