We filed a mechanics lien on owner of a project after getting paid we released it. Now If a owner of a project got a surety bond in my companies name as obligee should we have been notified? I find it odd that we filed a mechanics lien and this guy bonded around our lien named us as the obligee and we were never notified as such. Now there requesting we sign a release of claim on bond that we had no idea about. And there attorney is saying in order for the surety to close the file and terminate the bond they need us the obligee to affirmatively release any claim on the bond. Do I have to sign this or is my mechanic's lien release we filed sufficient enough to send them. I do not feel comfortable signing anything we were never notified of in the first place that we were the obligee. Thank you so much.
