I'm a property owner who hired a GC to build a house on my property. when the GC exceeded the total estimate for the house by $80K, I told him that I was terminating the current construction contract and offered him a new one. He refused this offer and refused to sign the Lien Release that I gave him, and packed his tools and left the job site. He sent me a last invoice for work done. There are 4 subs who are owed money on that invoice. Since I do not now trust the GC, I intend to pay the subs myself. I need a Lien Release that will give me peace of mind that these subs will not file a lien against me in the future. I have paid for the cost of construction myself there is no loan. Can you help? ...Read More

We are now getting demand letters for the factoring company to pay the invoice however we are not paying them but using the mobey to pay the outstanding invoices the subcontractor owes. Do I have to pay the factoring company or offest the payments from what the subs owes?...Read More

I installed a sewer line from the house to the city sewer line, and was told he would not pay for the work done. Everything was done to code and functions accordingly. ...Read More

We started work on a project yesterday and completed about $3000 worth of work when we had only received a $1500 retainer deposit. Our contract terms require a larger deposit on day work starts and we made 3 attempts yesterday to collect the deposit, all of which were ignored. Can we release the client from the contract and move on? I am not trying to collect anything, we are just too busy to track down money and since this is the first payment, it seems like a sin of things to come. I know the answer seems obvious, but I want to make sure I am protecting myself legally and that we can email a release from the contract and go on to our next project without repercissions. Thank you...Read More

I may have been scammed. I replaced a roof on a property for a person claiming to be the owner. Although, in my gut I started feeling this guy was not on the up and up. He asked me to initiate payments via credit card which I did not do previously. Once the job was done he asked me to add $4,700 to my invoice and once I got payment, he wanted me to send his broker the extra money to finalize fees from the closing of the house he just purchased and I reroofed. Once I did as he requested, he asked me to do more money on his credit card. When I refused him, he got very belligerent and cancelled his credit card payment. I looked on the county website - it is not his name on the property records, it is under an LLC. I'm at a loss on what I can do to try to get my money back from this guy. If he really is not the owner of the property, will a lien on the property benefit me at all? I believe I have his address which I got when he gave me his credit card information. ...Read More
