She is now threatening to put a lien on the property for money she and her husband say they spent on improvements. There was no contract for these supposed improvements....Read More

i have a truck (1996 chevy k2500) that a customer wanted a transmission put in back in 2009. Then after it's all said and done customer didn't want to pay the bill, and left the truck, it has been sitting on storage lot since accumulating a storage bill. The bill is worth more than what the truck is worth. Is a mechanics lien the only way to get a title for this truck to sell it to recoup some of the losses?...Read More

KentuckyPrevailing Wages
We are the homeowner, who had our basement flooded. Dr Flood was called to restore the damages. They grossly overcharged for work done, and did not do some services charged. They stated job started on 3/1-3/3, yet charged equipment rental for 4 days. Please call 859-458-9415 for a complete breakdown of their invoice. For your sake, I hope your company does not associate with this company. ...Read More

I had an oral agreement with a contractor in Kentucky for work on my rental property. I paid him in full, according to our agreement, except for window installation which he did not do after damaging my windows and then backing out on installing replacement windows. He has now filed a mechanics lien and threatened foreclosure. If I wait it out and he does start foreclosure proceedings, will we then go to court and I get a chance to plead my case or does a foreclosure automatically start happening? If we go to court, I will have to pay for an attorney although the lien and foreclosure is frivolous. It seems that everything on the internet is in favor of the contractor whether you owe money are not....Read More
