Hi I hired a painting contractor, he didnot Finish the job, and refused to return to compete the job. After few days rather than completing he started asking the for payment and threatening and also filed the lien against me which is wrong as the work is not finished yet. When he asked for payment I simply requested work to be finished first abd requested to send his workers. When I questioned the type of work his worker did and their license he threatened me to file a case of defamation against me. I have all the texts abd agreement to prove my point. Please advise what should be my next step. Thanks...Read More

I signed a contract with a customer to refinish his kitchen. I am changing the color of the cabinets. They are also doing other things like countertops, floor, and backsplash. He called me a said the other contractors are delayed so they want to delay my part of the job. He also wants his deposit back. I am able to do my part of job on time. My contract follows the state guidelines. I advised him he had three day grace period where he could cancel. We are beyond the three days. Just curious what the legalities are with this situation. He doesn’t want to cancel the job but he wants his deposit back....Read More

I rented equipment to a customer in CT to crush rock. I was not paid in full. I filed a mechanics lien against the property owner, where our equipment was rented. Now the customer has an application at the court for discharge of the lien, on the grounds that the lien is excessive. Is he correct. Im still not paid by the customer. If the lien is filed against the property owner, how can my customer ask permission to discharge the lien? Can I go ahead and pursue the lien against the property before the discharge of the lien takes place in July ...Read More

ConnecticutMechanics Lien
Hello Everyone, I am a law student in CT interested in construction law and have been researching mechanic's liens. I have seen it referenced that some states prohibit assignment of said liens in articles posted on Levelset, but have failed to find any statutory language which explicitly prohibits them. Several states have no reference to assignment in their mechanics lien statutes at all. Is there a state which does not allow for assignment of a perfected mechanic's lien? Thank you for your time and effort. Levelset has been my go to for all construction research....Read More

I am an Interior Designer. The contractor that I hired to renovate my customer's bathroom was unprofessional, did not complete the job, did poor work and has charged me with additional fees. The contractor sent my customer an e-mail slandering and degrading my name and my work. I emailed the contractor with a payment offer, he did not respond. He is now attempting to extort money from me by threatening my customer with an Attempt to Lien through Levelset. I have disputed the inflated fee he is attempting to collect from me via Levelset. How is this dispute settled on Levelset? How can I prevent a Lien and is the Lien legal? My customers did not contract him to do the renovation, I did. Please respond, my customer is threatening to file suit against myself and the contractor if this is not resolved immediately. Thank you...Read More
