Our investor group has a UCC Financing Statement, Security Agreement, Bill of Sale and Promissory Note signed by all parties and by notary Shannan Collier Stalvey and recorded with Fayette County Georgia Sheila Studdard Clerk, filed on April 1, 2019. The debtor company holding the purchase and sale agreement with equity around $400,000.00 is in default and likely will be purchased . The debtor company has a Commercial Purchase and Sale Agreement into which the investor group's funds were provided to secure the contract to acquire property. The total investment is $165,000, less 7 months of payments. Others are slapping mechanics liens on the property valued around $1,000.000.00. Can our group lien the property to recover the investment? Is this something you can help us do? Please advise. A closing is scheduled for 3/27/20. Thank you....Read More

my GC walked off my project, despite that I had been paying him per agreed schedule. Upon further examination, it turns out that he is not licensed to build, in a state (Georgia) that requires licensure to build (per Secretary of State's office). My project was finished by another GC. The first GC is threatening to file a lien for non-payment of work he did not do (work done by the second GC). Info I found on Levelset states that a non-licensed GC cannot file liens (in GA), but a representative at Levelset stated that it depends on where in GA. ...Read More

He says he can bond out and ignore our invoices and that there is nothing we can do. Is this correct? We are willing to counter over....Read More

Hi, my name is Jeff. The city of Cordele ga. gave me a stop work order. I have been remolding this house for 5 years and many additions. my house is in the historic society. I filed a 110-page report on what i was going to do on my house, they had 45 days to answer me. thy didn't. so, the city manager told me there at fault, go on and do everything on your paper. I approve it. For 5 years, the code enforcement has given me permission to do all the work and has approved everything. Jan. 1, 2022, the city manager was fired, the new city manager 10 months later, gave me a stop work order, she said the house additions have to be torn down. and the house has to be put back to historic Feachers. I have spent over 300,000 dollars on this house. This would ruin me. does she have the right to overturn what the old city manager has approved. Thank you, Jeff....Read More

I had a mechanics lean put on our property and have been sent to a third party collection agency by a hydro seed company in Georgia after I disputed part of the charge on our charge card. Thus far the company has not appealed payment as far as we know with Discover but filed a mechanics lean and has sent us to third party collection agency. The yard at first started growing grass then within 6 weeks a lot of grass just disappeared. This is when we decided to make partial payment. There were supposed to be 5 different seeds but we have only seen two types of grass. I had the person come out and they said they would come back next spring and redo failed areas for half price $500.00. The lean is for $1000.00. He said that the mix must have been done wrong. Not, believing that person would come back I appealed payment for the second day application but paid for first day and tilling. We were told the hydro seed would cover 6.0000 Sq ft at $1,000.00. Then the man stopped with very little area left to hydro seed but was the main area we had tilled and wanted to be green. Then his hose broke and Hydro seed still in his machine blew 30 ft in the air. It is our believe than we are under 6000 sq ft and in measuring both areas we are under 6000 square foot which should have been covered by only one application anyway. And with areas turning brown we did not think we should pay both charges so we did not. What is the next step we should take to have this issue resolved. Also, it seems odd to have a mechanics lean for spraying grass and not being a construction/building issue....Read More
