Hello, I followed all step-by-step instructions to file a mechanic's lien in Delaware, but was told by county clerk they could not accept my application, because an attorney had to file it on behalf of LLC. I did not see that requirement anywhere in the law. Is that correct that an individual cannot file a lien on behalf of LLC in Delaware and we have to hire an attorney? The process looked pretty straight forward....Read More

I have a Gentlemen saying he delivered stone materials to my job site after all personnel was gone for the day, he left no kind of tickets or receipts for this material because it was never delivered I did not hear from this gentleman until around 2 weeks later with nasty texts and calls threatening me, so he eventually came out to job I explained to him we did not get what he is claiming and we could prove it with simple calculations of measuring the trenches he flipped out when I said this and said he file a claim because he knew the head guy in the office of the state agency I was working for, I not sure if he filed a lien or just put in some kind of claim I have no contract with him not even an invoice with our company name all my other suppliers were paid off before i even recieved payment and they wont release my last payment is this legal to do file false claims and the public job holing my check?...Read More

We are a subcontractor (based out of Florida) that started and finished a project for a general contractor on a project located in Georgetown, DE. We have not been paid at all since we started and finished our work. According to the Owner, the Contractor is struggling with funds. The Owner does not want to pay because they stated that they have already paid the contractor for funds that the general contractor should have been paid to us. I would prefer to file a lien than to go through mediation/litigation with the contractor that appears to not have finds. Could anyone assist?...Read More

We contracted to have our second home painted. We came to see the job before sending the payment. It is a terrible job and we want it corrected before we pay. We had him paint the boathouse and it was a great job and we paid him immediately. This time he used other sub-contractors and it is totally unacceptable. We have paint all over our landscaping and deck....Read More

I am the owner of a renovation company. My customer agreed to have me demo and renovate her kitchen. There was a deposit of half of the total cost. The customer decided to have a family friend come in and finish the work and says she isn’t paying the remaining balance. The half that was put down does not cover all of the materials that were purchased or the labor that was provided for half of the job. Would it be beneficial to take them to small claims or or to file a mechanics lien? If I file a lien, could you recommend an attorney?...Read More
