I am a subcontractor in California. I sent a certified mail copy of Mechanics Lien to the GC and Owner, but have not yet filed with County Recorder. GC told me sending a Mechanics Lien Release will not affect my rights to file a Mechanics Lien at a later date (job is not complete yet), and wants to settle after job is complete in two weeks. Is this true? Will I have enough time to file a Mechanics Lien after job completion (especially with COVID-19 shut downs)?...Read More

This is regarding a Lien that was filed on 7/12/22 and Levelset said it was to expire on 10/07/22, but had requested a lien extension on 9/27/22. We received an email from Levelset on 10/02/22 stating they were missing some info but that they were going to send it out anyway. As of today, it has not been sent, we called in to check on the status and it seems they were still waiting on us to respond and it is now scheduled to go out tomorrow. We were unaware of this delay and now it is passed the lien expiration date, so will this lien extension even be valid? Are we still protected with this lien?...Read More

CaliforniaPayment Disputes
The contractor built a closet for me and he was paid for everything except the last day, 3 hours, and one board and now he wants to put a mechanic Lien on my Mobile home for 1,247.00. This is outrageous and he won't give up. We are Seniors and never had a signed contract or even given any kind of a detailed invoice for anything. We have paid for all the supplies and labor to date except for the last day and one board. He spent all of three hours and put in one board and gave me this outrageous bill. I have copies of all the payments I have made to date including on check that said for the balance owed and that would be everything up until the day the doors were delivered and installed. He is very nasty to use and threatening, first, he said small claims and then a lien? This is a land lease property and a mobile home....Read More

I was an investor on a rehab project. The Owner on Title to the property to be rehabbed was also the Contractor. He never completed the job 4 years ago and was incarcerated shortly after only starting the rehab project(he has been in jail since). I was in litigation for 3 years on a Quiet Title Action on the property in order to gain Title. That case fell apart and was dismissed due to Lawyer Malpractice. I sued in Small Claims for a Judgement in order to obtain a Lien. I recently lost. I am trying to exhaust all possibilities in order to have a Lien placed on this property. ...Read More

We have a lien recorded on a property and just received a notice of an upcoming trustee sale. Have we missed our opportunity to collect on this balance? Will our balance/lien be paid by new ownership? Language in "notice of potential bidders" states buyer "is or may be responsible for paying off all liens", why is the language "may be"? In what cases would they not have to pay the liens against the property?...Read More

Sometimes we fabricate something (a decorative metal panel, for instance) and just deliver it to our client. Do I need to file a notice in this case? Thank you! ...Read More
