My company usually does work in apartment buildings and is not required to provide pre-construction notices. However, we are currently owed money by a real estate agent for work done at a single-family home that is for sale. She has stopped answering our calls and emails. I think I have determined that we waived our lien rights because we failed to provide her pre-construction notice, as required by A.C.A. 18-44-115. Does this in any way affect my right to sue the real estate agent for applicable causes of action?...Read More

Gave my son the farm I live on for past 25 yrs. It was Half paid off when I gave it to him. It was with the understanding that I get to live on the farm in Arkansas until I die. I bought farm for $59.000. Now he has put the farm for sale for $350,000 and suing me for rent and trying to kick me off farm. I have put my life savings in farm for building 9 ponds, clearing land building garage, etc. amounting to approximately $40,000. He was having realtors come out with possible buyers. So I put legal lien on farm through the county court house and sent him the lien and filed it. Now he is suing me for the illegal lien and for rent and distruction of farm. The law suit should come up this winter at Jasper, Arkansas court house. I cannot afford attorney as I have spent all my savings on farm. Do I have a case. I used legal aid to answer the law suit. But they will not represent me in court....Read More

The buddy/ licensed / insured/Bonded contractor I was working for messed up a homeowners kitchen last weekend. I was off work but Monday am the homeowner terminated the contract. The house was 3/4 finished and nothing was paid to me. The contractor said he had received nothing as far as a draw or any payment from the homeowner. I believe this to be a lie. The contractor has a record of dishonesty, fraudulent work experience and lies. An attorney ( hired by the contractor) is working on the issue but it will be several months. It is not my fault that the contractor I was working for royally messed up. I am out 100+ hours of pay and 2 weeks of my life ...Read More

So, last month we were called out to a customer's home by the customer that had been damaged due to flooding. She told us she was having issues with the carrier and needed our help. We went out there, got all the legal paperwork signed, and proceeded with out normal steps. We put together an estimate, took her copies of all paperwork, got our original estimate approved in full by the carrier ($50,518.96), and then she told us she was waiting on the mortgage company to release her funds to get us started. After all this work, driving back and forth to her home (20+ minutes on way) multiple times, the hours spent putting a detailed estimate together and communicating with the carrier, she ghosts me and tells me she ended up hiring another contractor to do the work. I feel like she had a contractor on stand by the entire time, and falsely lead us to believe we would be doing the work in order to take advantage of our skills in getting estimates approved. I sent her a bill for 2% of the initial claim, which is pretty standard for outsourcing estimating.She hasn't paid. Do I legally have options to collect payment such as a lien?...Read More

There was no contract agreement, just told to get it done and send the bill. Deck was built and contractor refused to pay full amount claiming deck was not level, long after he paid the amount he wanted. Only complained of levelness once we went to collect unpaid portion. The deck is level and he does not agree with our normal hourly rates for welder services. He is needing to pay $3,805 still for a months worth of work....Read More

As an unlicensed sub contractor in Arkansas do I still have rights to place a lien on a General Contractor? I have a signed contract with the GC of a larger hotel project. To date I have approximately 9,000 in unpaid invoices. I know that I will be responsible for the taxes on the amount of the invoices if ever paid. Are there other associated penalties in the State Of Arkansas?...Read More
