Quick question. I just had an ADU built (conversion of a garage to a 2 bedroom living dwelling). I read California has a 1 year warranty period (as well as 4 year and 10 year for structure). Although this was not listed in my initial warranty, I wanted to make sure if there is a repair needed (on this new construction) within the first year, that it should be absolutely covered by the Contractor.
Thank you,...Read More
Government project overseas. All subcontractor and sub-subcontractor work performed in the USA. GC paid subcontractor for all of sub-subcontractor's work and finished materials. Subcontractor refuses to pay sub-subcontractor. Sub-subcontractor makes Miller Act claim notice. GC responds that no bond was issued or required -- asserts requirement waived under overseas project exception of 40 U.S.C. 3131(d).
What recourse does the sub-subcontractor have? Obviously, no lien could be obtained on government contract.
Can sub-subcontractor pursue claim against GC for failure to obtain bond, if the exception was not proper?...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

Often as a subcontractor the systems integrator can say, "I will pay you when my client pays me!" In this situation when I don't own the customer, I am at the system integrator's mercy.
Short of holding their contracts hostage by directing my teams to stop software development if I don't get paid, what is the bay way to manage this situation and still maintain a good working relationship with my client, the systems integrator?...Read More

Now; the supplier wants to put lien on my property because of my contractor didn’t pay for material around 32k.

I filed liens on fitness center jobs in TX and IL. The fitness centers went bankrupt (they are my client - I was supplying materials directly to them). The fitness centers were tenants, and now attorneys for the owners/landlords are saying I don't have lien rights and demanding I cancel the lien. Is it true that the owners/landlords would not be responsible in these states? Does only the tenant have responsibility to make sure I get paid?...Read More
