I received a notice that a contractor that my tenant hired to do the build out of the leased space has not paid for some or all of the materials. I am the property owner, I was not notified before the materials were delivered by the vendor for this contractor on my property. So can the material vendor put a lien on my property and charge interest with the lien on materials? ...Read More

AlabamaNotice of Intent to Lien
As a subcontractor hired by by a GC (who was hired by the property owner) labor and equipment was mobilized to a property in Gulf Shores, AL in response to Hurricane recovery in 2020. Equipment was brought on 9/22/2020 and the next day removed, as the GC was fired from the job. We had been advised that we could use our Invoice Date as Last Furnished dates. Due to the complexities of finalizing incurred and other costs during response to catastrophic events, the billing team worked and completed this invoice on 11/30/2020. Under the assumption that Invoice Date could be used as Last Furnished Date, and upon non-payment for services rendered from the GC, we filed a line on 3/30/2021 (4 months after the Invoice/Last Furnished Date). The property owner is disputing the validity of the lien based on the premise that our Last Furnished Date was 9/23/2020 (date the GC was fired from the job and labor and equipment was removed) and not 11/30/2020 (invoice date); and that the deadline for filing the lien has lapsed. Can you please review the information and provide a recommendation as to the validity of the lien, as well on the practice of using Invoice Date as Last Furnished Date? Thank you....Read More

We have a dispute with our county. We bought a modular home which is regulated by the State of Alabama. We put the modular home atop of a basement. We had submitted to the county "future plans" for our basement. The county has refused to allow power to the modular part of the home until the "future plans" was 100% complete. Now that we have completed our "future plans" and have passed our plumbing, electrical and building inspections for the basement the county is still refusing to allow power to the home. My only guess is that we have an LP gas fireplace in the modular home that is yet to be connected. However, we do have the permit and the modular is supposed to be regulated by the State. I fail to see how not having gas is a reason to withhold power. How is it any different than when someone comes in later and installs a fireplace? And how is our home different from the many thousands of homes built without a completed basement? It's my opinion that the county is acting 1. outside of it's authority and jurisdiction and 2. even if within it's authority it's acting in an arbitrary and capricious manner by allowing site built homes access to permanent power and having uncompleted basements while forcing us to have a completed basement. The field inspectors all say that the house has been ready for power and that the "office" is acting outside of it's authority. I have had no problems with field inspectors. This has cost our family tens of thousands of dollars by forcing us to make two house payments, forcing us to pay for construction that was outside of our loan, forcing our family to live apart, forcing our family to drive an extra two hours to work everyday for nearly a year. And now that all is complete the county still refuses to release our home for power. ...Read More

I am a licensed home inspector in Alabama. I have been asked by a lot of real estate agents if I do handyman work, because we are missing a ton of those people around here. I do, but I stay so busy, that I can’t. I was wondering if I could start a business that did nothing but contract work out for anything. Say an agent reaches out and says hey, I have plumbing, electrical and HVAC stuff I need repaired at a house that got inspected today. Can I sub all that work out to individuals who are licensed in those areas through a business that is not licensed in those areas. I don’t plan on get my license for anything else, but wondering if I could provide jobs for those who are licensed and make some extra money while doing it. ...Read More

Hi, I have a home I am in the process of rehabbing. I hired a contractor who turns out to not have a builders license so he had someone else pull the main permit to work on the house. He also had sub's pull permits for electrical, plumbing and framing. We are half way in the job, the main contractor (no builders permit contractor who I have a written contract with) has 50k out of the 85k he quoted me. He has not paid the sub contractors. Can the sub contractors come after me for the money they were not paid by the contractor who signed the paperwork to do the work with me?...Read More

We have a project completed last July in Alabama. Our client was not able to obtain payment from the actual owner and suggested that I reach out. I emailed and mailed a few letters to the homeowner but no response as of today . What is the best course of action at this time? Should we file a mechanic's lien on the property? Is there a letter that we can send out?...Read More
