We paid a contractor half of his asking price and he began work replacing and repairing our front and back decks on our private one family home. He asks as a favor to pay off the balance, which we did and we have not seen him on the project since. We have communicated with him regarding this, but his replies are of course sketchy and vague. Can we use a mechanics loan to recoup our losses?...Read More

IowaPreliminary Notice
I hired a contractor to fix the drywall in my basement due to water damage. This was an insurance claim, and the contractor was a preferred vendor for the insurance company. I paid my deductible to the contractor, and my insurance company paid the rest. The contractor hired a drywall company to complete the work. The drywall company wasn’t paid by the contractor for the work (it’s only been 30 days since the work was completed.) The drywall company is calling me threatening to put a lien on my home. Can he do this considering I was contracted with the contractor not the drywall company, and I paid everything in full. ...Read More

Im a Lawn and Landscaping company owner, and recently had a customer accept my bid for her property. So i collected half down for materials like normal and got the materials, Completed the job, And everything in the scope of work, And the customer is now demanding extra materials not listed in the contract. Now she is refusing to pay for the completed work! I believe since she is doing this that she had no intent to pay for the labor when the job is completed meaning the other 50% down, My question is; Is this considered "Theft of services" in Iowa? and can i just file a report at the local police department for it?...Read More

Hello, I am the GC on a job in IA with an active lien in place. I would like to file a partial lien release for job 102001253, but it looks like the state of IA does not allow that and instead give us the option to file the following, Conditional Waiver and Release on Progress Payment, Conditional Waiver and Release on Final Payment, Unconditional Waiver and Release on Final Payment and Unconditional Waiver and Release on Progress Payment. I am not sure what is the correct document to file, in our case, the client has made a partial payment on the original lien claim amount, but there is still a balance due. what is the recommended waiver for this case? Thank you Saira Quezada...Read More
