Dear Sir, Sorry to contact you, I got your name from the internet research and from one of the articles(Budde,Nathan) you have published, hoping to get some guidance from you. I am new in construction industry. I started by building my own house. I hired a construction manager to build our own house and to enter in the construction industry. I found out one vendor myself for dive way pavers and backyard pavers. We signed a contract with him to finish above project of drive way and back yard for X amount of money including labor and materials charges. He completed job. He made me buy $ 6363.88 worth of material which I bought on my credit card and provided him. I mad him a full payment and provided material worth $ 6363.88 which he was supposed to purchase himself. Out of nowhere, I got a certified mail from a supplier from whom this vendor of mine bought some materials stating that they are bringing a lien against my property in the sum of $ 16621. 91 and included copies of 14 invoices which I have no knowledge of. So , I already paid my vendor his labor and material cost for the contract ,I have to pay again to the supplier of his the material cost even though I paid my vendor not only the material cost but also $ 6363.88 material I bought for him on credit. I am paying the material cost twice. Is there any justice in the USA? Can you show me how should I handle this situation. I feel like quitting the construction field I have decided to go into.
