This question relates to California. Lets say a subcontractor works on a property July 1. A lender then comes in on August 1 and puts a lien on the property. If the subcontractor doesn't get paid and puts a lien on the property September 1, do they have priority over the lender because they performed work before the lender filed a lien? Also, in many states, the subcontractor has a specific number of days to file their lien in order to get priority. Is there a time period in California?
This problem with respect to payment has been bugging me for quite the while now, I just can't seem to get around it. A friend who offers terrific best homework services tried to help me, but he only ended up confusing me all the more. This payment problem really is a huge one to be honest.
