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

We are a subcontractor to the Prime Contractor. Last day of our work on an Airport job was 11/11/20. The Contractor owes us $311K but has not been paid, so he can't pay us. Contractor has requested a change order for more materials. Will that Change Order reset the clock on the last day of work for the Bond Claim deadline? ...Read More

We are waiting for payment from an insurance agency, but they are preparing to close on a property. If they do not pay us by the time they close on the property, how does that affect our lien rights?...Read More

I hired a concrete contractor to do patio work at my home in Al on May30,2020. Paid in full. On Nov 20, 2020 the concrete supplier placed mechanics lien on my home because the contractor didn’t pay for the concrete. Does the 4 month timeframe for filing apply? If so, how can it be released? Will this lien expire and go away after 6 months of file date if the supplier doesn’t go to court? Thank you...Read More

I'm in Alabama. A roofing company damaged my rain gutters. They have an employee with previous experience installing rain gutters. They said they would repair the gutters. The roof was completed in November 2020, however, the gutters were just repaired in February 2021. They have not asked for payment due to repair work needing to be done. They asked for the balance to be paid the day the gutters were repaired. I explained to them that I had unexpected car trouble come up and had to use some of the money I had set aside for them. I told them I could pay part of the balance now and the rest by the end of the month. I have been told that I have 5 days to pay the balance or they will place a lien on my home. Is this legal? ...Read More

I own a company that has a construction business license through the county. Im not a Gc . The company is a cleaning company originally. I was asked by a client if we could do some repairs to her home and i explained that it would be possible because my husband is a handyman .So repairs were done and the last bit was completed. She refused to pay and said we couldnt put a mechanic lien because im not licensed through home builders. So my question is now we will be going to court and her lawyer is stating i cant collect what is owed because of improper licensing. But the big thing is she knew what my company was never mislead her one bit . Everything we did fell under what a handyman is allowed to do. So here we are 6 months later and she admitted she owes the money but is refusing so now she is attempting to sue me ....Read More

I am a Retired Construction Superintendent. My Step Son asked me to build him a garage on his property. He said he would help so he could learn about building. We orally agreed that I would be paid $22.50 per hour worked. I kept good daily records of my time and work performed. Actually, I was the Architect, Engineer and Builder. He furnished all materials. It was a part time project because both of us had full time jobs. We also agreed that I would be paid every 3 weeks. I was paid for the first 9 weeks in 3 separate 3-week time sheets. The last 9 weeks he has not paid. I sent him a time sheet at the end of each 3 week period. As I said, he is my Step Son of 20 years so I assumed he would eventually pay me. I finished the project in 18 weeks. I have sent request for payment 6 times. Because of his mother I have not demanded payment in person. The amount he owes me is over $5,000 and I would like to be paid....Read More
