2 months ago

Good evening. We have file through levelset an intent of lien for a job we have yet to get paid . We received a called from the general contractor attorney trying to get settled for a lesser amount and keep our right to pursuit the subcontractor who hired us for the rest of the amount owed to us. Project was completed in AL. I would like to talk to an attorney regarding my rights and what is our best option here.

Generally: If you’ve sent a Notice of Intent to Lien and the GC, owner, or their attorneys have reached out to make payment – that’s usually time to negotiate. If they’re refusing to pay what’s owed, then it may be time to consider filing a mechanics lien. Once a lien is filed, negotiations will typically resume – and, generally, the lien will be paid before further action becomes necessary. In any event, if you do opt to file a lien, this article will be useful: The 4 Steps to Take After Filing a Mechanics Lien.
