What to do if you have filed a mechanics lien on a property due to non-payment and still no action?

Florida

I'm a material supplier in Florida, who supplied materials to a jobsite in Forsyte, Georgia. Our payment terms were COD, the subcontractor wrote a bad check due to not being paid by the general contractor. After notices and multiple failed attempts to reach the general contractor I filed the lien. The general contractor called and asked if he wired the money to us if we would have the lien released. He has still not done so and I just don't know what my next steps are. Can you please advise?

This is really a question better suited for a Georgia lawyer, but you should contact an attorney to discuss your options. Likely, your next step is to sue to foreclose the lien, if you're not able to get the GC to pay you directly. Good luck!

Have a lawyer with expertise review your documents and then send a demand letter from them to GC/Owner etc.
