I sent out a notice of intent to lien for a property where approved work was performed. I am assuming they are not thrilled about the lien notice because they responded that they will be sending our notice to their attorney (who is also part owner) and that he charges $500 an hour which will be deducted from the job costs. Is this something they are allowed to do? I do not want to respond the wrong way. I am not sure where to move froward from here.
