A septic company is threatening a mechanics lien on our an Indiana County property, as we have not paid the bill of $980. The septic company was hired, by us, to perform a County inspection, necessary for "transfer of property". The inspector, from Septic company, performed the inspection on April 21, and stated our septic would pass inspection, after the d-box lid "cap" was replaced. It was thoroughly broken, when uncovered. (broken by the inspector while digging, but unproved) The inspector, of Septic company , said they could replace the lid "cap", and then send in the report to the County, and everything will pass..The inspector said it would be "inexpensive" to put a new cap on the d-box. We gave them oral permission to replace the cap (only) and then send in the report to the County Health Dept. The house is vacant. Unannounced, and with no authorization nor notification, the Septic company, same as did our inspection, came to the house on May 1, 2021, and replaced the entire d-box and charging us $980 for this work. They are now threatening a lien on the property, which has a closing date of June 4th...What can we do? What rights do we have? No work was ever authorized in writing. Thank you, ...Read More

I have noticed some discrepancies on your website. For example on this page about Indiana, it suddenly switches to Illinois. Also there is some discrepancy as to whether it is sixty days before work is started or sixty days after it is complete. Does not inspire confidence....Read More

I have read that a preliminary notice is to be given within 60 days of the first day of work. I have received legal advice that a preliminary notice is to be given before work begins, after being filed with the recorder. I am a contractor in Indiana, trying to protect the business. Is this a document that is meant to protect the contractor? or is this a document that is to be given only if you intend to file a lein KNOWING that someone won't pay. Most of my projects are more than 60 days, and by that time we really have no idea if someone intends not to pay.. I really need assistance...Read More

Thanks for the answer above. Just need clarification. So, I deliver material to my customer on September 1 who is a subcontractor for a job that starts, let say, September 1 as well. Due to issues, my customer, the sub, cant get started on the job until September 30th. Does the clock tick (to send a notice) on September 1 or September 30? Thanks!...Read More
