I am a subcontractor, I have submitted a mechanic lien to the property, the company own me more than 20k, and they called me offering 2k for remove the lien, mentioning me that I should take them, because the lean anyways would not work, since I applied for it after the 40 days I had started the work, what should I do?

Assuming that there is not a payment bond in place, as a subcontractor you are required to deliver a notice to owner (NTO) within 45 days of starting work or placing materials on the job site, whichever is first. You are also required to file your lien within 90 days of finishing work, not including trivial or punch work. If you failed either of these requirements then you have no lien rights. But if you are owed $20,000 why would you take $2,000 to settle the debt? See a lawyer about this right away. Whoever hired you/your company to do the work owes you the money regardless of whether you have a valid lien.

What if the workers didn’t finish the job and made mistakes that are significant to remedy?
