I work for myself. I was hired by my buddies boss to rebuild a motor in a 300 Chrysler. This motor was already taken apart and left on the ground. I'm the 2nd person to pick up after the 1st guy left. We were both unsure if it would start after o rebuilt it from this state. After 2 months of rebuilding this motor, it would not start. He called me last week and said he was taking it to a dealership. He owes for my labor over these 2 months. Do I lean his home or the vehicle. His intentions were/are to sell it after it starts. If it ever does. ...Read More

I was hired by a Colorado GC to install as specified in the plans provided by the architect (this included which specific products to install). There is an issue with the manufacture of the products themselves, but they were installed properly. I am being told that I have punch list items to complete because the products are not working correctly. The products are defective, but install was correct. The GC should have already received 3 draws on this project, but is saying they have not received any payment. There is a pay when paid clause in the contract. The project is in CO. Due to the corona virus, the site (it is a visual arts center owned by a university) is shut down so I couldn't do the punch list even if I wanted to. What steps do I need to take to preserve my lien rights? How can I send an NOI when they aren't even open?...Read More

I have started the lien paperwork on a renovation myself (Primary Contractor) and my Sub-Contractor were not paid on. Here are the details and question. We have a previous co-owner (Ryan Nazario) and who approved the work, a brand new sole owner (Tom Campbell) who is refusing to pay, I am the primary contractor (project manager) hired by Ryan and a sub-contractor (Jeremy Hawkins) for the construction hired by myself. Both Jeremy and my contracts stated we would be paid at the sale of the property. Along with managing the project/reno, I also provided all material for the reno (out of my own pocket). FYI previously Ryan & Tom had a private note, payment to Tom became an issue and Tom filed to obtain title in which he was given. Can Jeremy and I (both contractors) file ONE lien? Or do we need to file two separate liens? Thanks, Beth McClave 719-582-3402...Read More

I am a professional Landscape Architect registered in the State of Colorado. I provided professional design services to a homeowner. They either changed their mind on the design or didn't like it, and now are saying they are going to move and have NOT PAID their original invoice for the design services for over 90 days. Can I file a Notice of Intent to Lien and then file a Lien on their property? What kind of Lien do I file?...Read More

We are getting ready to file lien(s) but this is a strange situation. I was first hired and contracted as a project manager to manage a commercial and residential renovation to then sell. I hired and contracted a contractor to do most of the work (construction, electrical, tile etc). In addition to my project manager role, I also did some of the painting and landscaping to reduce cost. All of my credit cards were used to fund the materials and myself and my contractor's contract stated we would be paid at the sale of the property. Midway through the reno, I was added to the property as a co-owner. Toward the end of the project/renovation, the investor and the original owner had a disagreement regarding the note (I was not on or added to just the title). The investor ended up taking the property and has said and threatened that he will NOT pay anyone or reimburse anyone for our labor, time, job or contract(s). My first question is, because I was a contractor first with a contract but then became a co-owner, can I file a lien. When I was added as a co-owner my contract with the original owner stayed in place and I continued to provide labor. Nothing changed there. My contractor is filing a lien against the investor/new owner and I was told along with him, I can file my own separately too.....is this true? My second question is, if I can file a lien, would we both be considered GC's? Or is he the GC and I'm a sub? Or visa versa? This is a very complicated situation regarding ownership and contractors and just trying to get paid what I put in and are owned per contracts. Thanks in advance for your help.
