we installed 2 new garage doors for a customer, but she was going to use her existing garage door opener. after the doors were installed, it became evident we need to replace the photo eyes on her opener and at her request we did. several weeks later, she demanded an emergency weekend repair because her neighbor told her the garage door installation had a very serious problem. when we arrived, the problem was the garage door opener that was causing the problem, NOT the door. we invoiced both the service call to install the safety eyes (May 3rd 2021) and the emergency weekend repair (June 28th 2021) and she is refusing to pay. i threatened her with filing a mechanics lien and she responded by saying she does not have a signed contract with us to do the additional labor, so she stands with her original refusal to pay. We definitely do not have anything signed by her. The original photo eyes service call was upon her approval while we were on site. for the second service call, i have a voicemail from her demanding an emergency repair, which we did on a sunday afternoon. i have 2 questions. first, do i need to respond to her email and if so, how do i respond? secondly, despite our lack of signed contract, can we still file the Intent and subsequent mechanics lien?? ...Read More

We are involved in a situation where it looks like a foreclosure sale is imminent on a property with several outstanding liens (mechanics and mortgage). Our mechanics' lien was recorded after several other mechanics' liens. We are wondering whether the fact that our lien was recorded after other liens will impact our right to collect from the foreclosure proceeds. That is, are subcontractor mechanics' liens that are recorded first senior to subcontractor mechanics' liens recorded later? Or will the court apportion the foreclosure proceeds equally among the lien claimants based on their pro-rata share of the entire amount in outstanding liens? In other words, will the first subcontractor to record a lien be paid in full before the later subcontractors get paid? ...Read More

The excavation company's original contract was for $49,730. Billed amounts of $31,950 and $9,000 were paid, leaving a contract balance of $8780 to finalize the contract work. The excavation company did perform additional work to complete retaining walls and stone work. The excavation company billed on 7/10/17 for an additional $15,919.50 to perform this work. This charge was billed as labor and machine time at an hourly rate. We believe we are being overcharged. On 8/14/17 we paid the balance of the contract $8780, and would expect to pay the difference $7139.50 . We worked in good faith to resolve the dispute with emails and phone calls. On October 23, 2017 we received certified mail stating the excavation company intends to file a lien with in 10 days for the unpaid $15,919.50. To summarize my questions: All payments made to date have had CRS 38-22-119 lien releases signed by the excavation company. No further work was performed on site after the lien release was executed. Can he legally file this lien? If not, how do we legally prevent the lien from being filed? Should we execute a performance bond and a labor and materials bond, each in excess of 150% of the contract price? I don't understand the bonding process? is it cash or letter of credit? Does bonding tie up a substantial amount of my working capitol? Please advise. Thank you....Read More

Retail site we put up 3 retail buildings and their parking lots. Job has been complete for several months, but now owner (developer) has issues with the lot from paving, dirty, etc. to a point of being ridiculous. They have paid us all of the contract, but have withheld a value that is too large for the reasons they keep giving as issues. Can we file a lien?...Read More

Customer was very intoxicated most of the job. On the second day on the job I went to lunch and he called me very intoxicated, said I was fired, and proceeded to belittle me. I didn't know from day to day what the environment was going to be like. The last day I finished up the job. I told him a 2 ft. piece of bullnose I installed got wet and darkened up. If it didn't lighten up after it dried I would replace it. He said ok and paid me the check . I went right to my bank and deposited it. The customer called and left a message about the piece of bullnose that I could not understand because he sounded very intoxicated. I figured he would sober up and remember our conversation. That was the last I heard until I found out he stopped payment...Read More
