Lien rights


My name is Mark Hall, and I am the general manager for G&C Door. I also have my own license and do door installs under Hallmark Carpentry. I have one contractor who is slow pay and I generally get paid after the house closes. The contractor is getting large in his building starts. I have currently been doing the 20 day premin and have started filing liens of the jobs. My question: is it ok to pay the materials that I purchase from G&C Door with my credit card, and still have all my lien rights protected for each unpaid job from the contractor? The lien says its coming from Hallmark Carpentry LLC.

You are probably ok. The lien secures payment for the reasonable value of the services provided. That value is what determines the lien/debt amount, not who paid for materials with what credit card. When you have a contract, the agreed contract price will typically (but not always) determine what the reasonable value is for something since the parties agreed on that value/contract price for the services.
