I have a signed contract for a handicap bath remodel, and receipts to prove I paid the contractor in full, his quoted price. The bath is not handicap equipped and the contractor never completed the job, and now he is threatening to place a lien on the house. I live in Alabama. We bought the house cash and plan to live in it until we die. Will I get a notice if he places a lien? Will I get a chance to contest this before an amount can be set? Should I just ride this out? Can he force resale of the home for less than $3,000.00?
