We contracted with a fence builder to build our fence. We sent them $3992. with the balance due upon completion. It was supposed to be started the middle of June. I have called, emailed and went by their office. No one there, doors locked. What steps do I take to get our deposit back. This is Superior Fence in Cumming, GA. Thankyou Kathy Milstead...Read More

GeorgiaConstruction ContractLien DeadlinesMechanics LienNotice of Intent to LienPreliminary Notice
60 days ago, we drew for 50% retention on a project that was closer to 80% done. They paid the material and labor draw but refused the retention draw saying they'd pay it all at the end. The contract is now 100% complete with no complaints. Our contract does state they have 60 days for final retention. Do we not have the right to 50% upon 50% completion. Do they have the right to hold it?...Read More

GeorgiaLien Waivers
On the Georgia lien waivers, there is language that says "WHEN YOU EXECUTE AND SUBMIT THIS DOCUMENT, YOU SHALL BE CONCLUSIVELY DEEMED TO HAVE BEEN PAID IN FULL THE AMOUNT STATED ABOVE, EVEN IF YOU HAVE NOT ACTUALLY RECEIVED SUCH PAYMENT, 60 DAYS AFTER THE DATE STATED ABOVE UNLESS YOU FILE EITHER AN AFFIDAVIT OF NONPAYMENT OR A CLAIM OF LIEN PRIOR TO THE EXPIRATION OF SUCH 60 DAY PERIOD." If we signed Interim Waivers and Release Upon Payment and we aren't paid, does that mean we need to file a lien for each progress waiver? What if the 60 days expire but my last furnishing date was less than 90 days ago so I'm still within my lien rights timeline?...Read More

Over the Fall and Winter of 2017, personnel from our company has been to the customer's house to (1) meet Allstate adjusters to negotiate a more lucrative claim settlement for the insured (2) met with different subcontractors to establish an accurate scope of work for the multiple trades within the claim (3) accompanied a carpentry subcontractor at the property to remove a shutter from the house so they could bring and keep it in their shop for precise measurements. We performed all those functions at the customer's house in addition to a myriad of communication with Allstate's claims department from our office to assure the customer received maximum benefits. After the customer received all the benefits from our efforts, she is now not cooperating with us and has shut down all communication. We would like to place a lien on the house. The only physical work we've done to the house thus far is climb onto the roof with the adjuster on multiple occasions and accompany a subcontractor to remove a shutter from the house and take away. Could we legally put a lien on the house?...Read More

The gear we bought on the job is bought and paid for, job is now delayed because the panel cans will not all fit in the electrical room. 1/2 of it (the 1/2 onsite) was billed for under the stored material line on our schedule of values. The material onsite is the same material that wont fit. This is important because i specifically excluded re-design in my contract. However the GC blames because he states "your submittals were never approved in writing" . Submitals sent in 6 months prior...Read More

LendingOne is a lender that lends on small-medium construction projects across the country. We are interested in using your online service to generate our lien waivers to provide to borrowers as a precondition to releasing construction draws during the course of the project. But, before we do, we need to be absolute sure your documents are fully compliant with each state's laws. Can we set up a call with someone from your legal team to further discuss? Otherwise, we can;t move forward. Thank you....Read More

This is the scenario: There is our company that installs racks. There is our CLIENT-A that also installs racks but hired us to do it. There is his client that hired him to install the racks. We worked. Our job was completed over 2 weeks ago. Our client doesn't want to pay. He won't answer e-mails, phone calls or text messages from our recruiters or admins. Sometimes he answers and if he hears our voice he hangs up. I have another client - we will call it CLIENT-B, they recommended CLIENT-A to us but at some point they had a similar issue, and they also had to file a lien on them too. They recommended this page to me because the way she explained it was that the lien went on his client which is a big deal because he does not want to get in trouble with his own clients. What are our options?...Read More
