I am a self employed sub contractor of entertainment (musical) performances at nursing homes in the States of CT and RI. My issue is in reference to one my CT based clients, for which I do programs at 5 of their facilities in both CT and RI. I know that I am not the only entertainer that is having issues in collecting. I have a date going back to April 2019 and a different facility for June 2019. The rest are monthly performances beginning with September 2019. They are now 6 months is arrears. The email address on their website is incorrect. I did obtain an email address to which I sent a respectful letter several weeks ago, with no response. This site appears to pertain only to Construction job, is that correct or does it also apply to other vendor situations? Thank you for your time and any information or direction you can provide. Sincerely, Judy Hall Gray, Hope Valley, RI...Read More

We installed shades in a home. Real estate law says these are fixtures (real property). Client will claim they are personal property and we don't have right to file a lien. Who decides that and when is it decided? ...Read More

I read the importance of correct claimant name after I printed and notarized the Notice to Lien. Can I add "my name dba" (handwritten) next to my business name (that is typed in the notarized Notice)? Do I need to initial next to the handwritten portion? Will the Notice have to be rewritten and resent? The Certificate to file with the town clerk will have the proper typed name as claimant. I'm on vacation and can't get a new notary and don't want to miss a deadline. ...Read More

Is a simple description of work in the Notice to Lien adequate? Should more detail go into the actual Certificate of Mechanics lien that is filed with the town clerk? ...Read More

I am a licensed HVACR Connecticut Contractor.9 months ago I placed a mechanical lien on a property. Materials and labor were supplied to a (supposed) friend of 17+years where as a boiler, gas piping and hot water system were installed in his girlfriends home, Subsequently she became his wife. When the now husband was presented with a already discounted bill he refused to pay. We have spoken several times and he has made me offers for less than what the material cost me, this was unacceptable and only after I filed suit against him, his girlfriend and her father did he reach out to me to settle. I filed two small claim suits as the amount was greater than $5,000.00. I withdrew the suit as enforcement (Foreclosure) of the mechanics lien in place may wake him up and entice him pay. It is not worth the expense to litigate in superior court as the cost to defend my position could exceed the amount owed with no guarantee my collection efforts( Legal fees) will be compensated for....Read More

I am a material supplier on a commercial construction job. The owner is having issues closing on funding the complete the project at approximately 50% complete. I have supplied 99% of my contract and the date we last shipped equipment was 3/12/21. We still owe them 79 components to complete our deliverables. The general contract has promised to pay $10k for June and July so we can reduce our receivable balance from $92,315 to 72,315. Should I file a lien now or wait to see if the general delivers the $10k in June and July before filing?...Read More
