HI, my parents worked on a new house adding the Siding to it back in November. They have not been paid for that house yet. The vendor who they worked for to finish that house owes them $4,700. The vendor said the company never paid them, but we got in contact with the company and they had already paid the vendor who has not paid us. We were told that we maybe could file a lien to get the vendor to pay for the job the was finished in November. Is that true, and how can we file a lien? Where can we get a Lien Form to file out? The house the worked on is in a different county then where we live....Read More

I filed a lien for non-payment against our contractor. His attorney ($25/hr) sent us a letter saying the lien was discharged by a lien removal bond. Is this possible and our rights removed?...Read More

I am a resident of Cobb County in Georgia and had a crooked contractor file a lien on my property. I contested it and he did nothing further and it expired October 14, 2020. January 15th I saw a pop-up on my online mortgage account that another lien was filed. After one has been filed and they did nothing in the 90 days, can they file another one? Thank you for your help!...Read More

Talked to President of ALA Construction Services today and we asked him when are we going to get paid! He claims they never received Mechanical Lien that was sent to them, "which is a lie". He claims that expiration date has expired for a lien and chances of getting paid is not good....Read More

So according to the 2021 Georgia lien law, a notary is not required now, BUT can a general contractor on their own still require a notary signature from the subcontractor and/or supplier? If so, how can it not be required, but also be allowed as a requirement? I have a customer who is still trying to require the notary (not the end of the world, but an inconvenience). Tipton Harrison Woodstock, GA...Read More

A guy offered a free roof inspection. I allowed it. He said I needed a whole new roof and he would show me how to file the claim. (I had discontinued shingles). While I was filing a claim, he filled out some paper work. When he asked me to sign the papers, I refused explaining that I didn't want to sign any agreements. He said, "the beautiful thing about covid is...you don't have to sign this and my company will still let me work with you.". I chose another roofing company based on a series of quotes I received. The original roof inspector forged my signature and now says I owe him $750.00 dollars for his time. Is this a fraudulent mechanics lien? Our 2 signatures aren't even close to looking the same. ...Read More

So we competed a landscape project at a construction site in the back yard. The owner is using the excuse that a city arborist needs to sign off on final inspection before paying the remaining balance of invoice. The city arborist inspector said a tree needs to be planted in obviously all the other construction work needs to be completed first front yard to complete site plan before approving- the front yard tree has nothing to do with the invoice we completed in back. How would you handle this? Is that a fair reason to wait on pay? Or should I go ahead and send a preliminary lien notice. I am in Georgia....Read More

Started job first of January. At beginning of March we pull off to wait for construction so we can do trim out to complete the job. But covid shuts site down. During shut down customer ends up filing chapter 11 in oct. after many requests to get paid I file a lien in Sept before chapter 11. Does that mean because my last day onsite was March 10 my lien is no good even though I never completed work becaise site was shut down ?...Read More

how do you receive the money owed to you for painting, cleaning, etc for a real estate agent who constantly says it is not finished. I had an estimate for the work but did not have her sign off on it. Lesson learned. House is still up for sale and my husband worked on that house sometimes until midnight for several weeks. She refuses to pay because he does not hold a contractors liscense....Read More
