What would be my position?

FloridaMechanics Lien

A project manager from TVS Construction Services LLC told me he need people to work. There is no contract we just spoke. My role in this job is a subcontractor. I was in the process of filing for a lien and it asked what is your customer’s role and it only had General contractor and other. Is there a problem if I would change of role in this job putting that I’m a general contractor?

I'm sorry to hear about the confusion! First, it's worth noting that I can't advise you on how to fill out any form. However, I can shed some light on how different options are set up in the zlien system and how they might affect a claim. First, it's never a good idea to input incorrect information. At the same time, it's worth mentioning that, even when a claimant typically provides work under one role (such as "subcontractor"), their role on a given project is really dictated by the party who hires them. This is true both in regards to lien law and the zlien system. Anyway, it would be helpful to understand how the roles are defined, at least within zlien. Within the system, a contractor or other party hired directly by the owner of the project in order to coordinate work is typically considered a "general contractor" - regardless of whether that party traditionally thinks of themselves as one. Of course, that won't be true in every situation - and the specific circumstances will determine which designation is most appropriate.
