This customer who we filed a mechanics lien on had her attorney call us to offer a "final settlement" of $3000 LESS than what is owed according to her contract. If we don't accept her offer, we will have to go to court and Pay her legal fees. Need advice on how we can avoid this. She has breached her contract and her attorney says his client wants to come out ahead on this. We do not want to settle. Help!...Read More

I am a "safety engineer" with a GC. My primary job functions consist of assessing risk with our superintendents and recommending solutions to them. However, I do not have the authority to make policy or change our company policy; I am only permitted to interpret the policies as written. I do not meet the executive, computer, outside sales, or computer exemptions. Is my job considered exempt? My employer has never paid me overtime. What recourse do I have if I am not exempt?...Read More

We are the general contractor on a commercial remodeling project in Arizona. Is the general contractor required to file a preliminary notice or an Intent to Lien before filing a lien? We thought only our subs would be required to file a Preliminary Notice. Would an email to the customer and their subsequent reply suffice as Intent to Lien and acknowledgement of delivery? ...Read More

ArizonaPreliminary Notice
I was contracted by Mark Reeves, the brother of Mike Reeves-deceased, to clean up some blood and trash from the inside of Mike's home. Once we completed the job, Mark informed me that he couldn't pay ($2,352) until the estate was settled. Therefore, I want to file a lien on the property to protect my ability to be paid. Mark Reeves lives out of state, and I only have a phone number and email address for him. So is sending the lien notice to Mike's address along with an email copy to Mark sufficient? Or do I some how need to find Mark's address? Thank you...Read More

We are a General Contractor in Arizona. We completed cosmetic repairs for a Homeowner. The Homeowner was constantly traveling, and rushing out of town, so he never signed the contract. He did however sign a credit card receipt to pay for the job in full. We completed the work in December 2020. The Homeowner filed a dispute with his credit card, and the money has been rescinded for 90 days, until they make a determination. The Homeowner is blaming us for loosening a cabinet that fell off the wall. We did not install this cabinet, however we did note that it was loose prior to working in the bathroom where the cabinet was located. Regardless, the contract is complete, and now we are out the entire value of the contract waiting for the credit card company to conduct their "investigation" into their cardholder's claim....Read More

A contractor we hired for paver hardscape installation They stated pavers, materials and installation would be done that day but left a mountain of sand in the street and after calling them to ask why pavers had not arrived with workers as promised they said it will take at least another week for the pavers. We cancelled the job and they threatened us with mechanics lien unless we paid 450.00 for the sand. They refused to justify that much for sand and threatened legal action and it was non negotiable. We filed a complaint with ROC but they dismissed the claim saying it was a financial dispute. We don't want to pay because it is such an overcharge; and are willing to pay half that since we had to dispose of the sand ourselves; HOA requiring material on street to be removed after 72 hours. Not sure what to do at this point...Read More

Hired a AC installer in Aug 2019 to install duct work and AC unit on our detached garage. We paid final bill in full within days. 10 months later in June 2020 we get new bill stating we still owe $500 more. We received a final statement from the company showing we had a zero balance in Aug 2019. Can they put a lien against our property without taking us to court first. We have all the documentation to prove our payments etc....Read More
