I have done work for this gentleman before on houses that he's bought and renovated and rent it out now he's asking me to give him an estimation on the roof and I work with the gentleman that does have a license and has general liability insurance for himself so I gave the other guy just an estimated price on doing the roof is that illegal for me to do that. So my question is do I have to be licensed or anything in Michigan to give us someone an estimation on what it would cost to do a roof...Read More

Im an electrician and was called out by a GC to perform electrical services. I order the materials worth about $9,000. But when I show up at the job site to deliver the materials and start work, no one is there to let me in. The next day, the owner fires everyone due to financial reasons. In total, I have incurred about $1,200 in labor and $9000 in materials. I do not know how much I can file a lien for because the materials are in my office. Can I include the cost of the material in my lien even though the material is still in my possession?...Read More

Hi, I am starting a remodeling and maintenance business in Michigan. I am currently working on my builders license and have a website. My question is, are there things that I can't advertise on my website until I have a builders license? Or say things like replacing a toilet, unless I have or employ a licensed plumber? Thank you, Daniel...Read More

I am in the process of trying to sell my home. My realtor gave me the name of a friend of his that has done work for him in the past and stated he was a contractor. I have never hired anyone before to do work like this so I took the word of my realtor that this guy did good work. ( the realtor also sold me this home in 2015). The estimate was written on a note pad and neither of us signed it. He had me put the cashiers check in his name and not a business name. I guess I should have questioned that. He kept saying it was gonna be done by a certain time, but wan't getting it done.He never repaired any nail holes in walls before painting them. He put up some drywall where a furnace was removed and didn't let he mud dry before he painted it. Parts of the wall are darker shade of paint then others. The new countertop has a screw head pushing through. The counters were pushed up against the stove, but he moved one counter to match up with the top cupboard but never moved the counter on the other side of the stove so there is a big gap between the stove and one counter. With the two rooms that were painted poorly, he said he would deduct $500-600 of the remaining balance and we would have to redo the rooms ourselves. I told him that the reason that I hired someone in the first place was that we didn't have the time or help to be able to get it done in a reasonable time and the realtor and I wanted to have it done by Aug 5th,2022. I then suggested that he repaint the rooms and he furnish the paint ( I furnished the paint the first time) and also to knock off some money since now, it will take an EXTRA 5 days before he can get to it, which was already pas the original date he stated that he would get it done which was July 29th. When I suggested that, rather than give me a counter offer, he got in his truck and just left. ...Read More

I live in Michigan. A contractor filed a lien on my home residence. He is trying to charge us $1800 for a door that only cost $600 so we withheld his final payment of $1100 for labor. He has since filed a mechanics lien on our home through your website levelset. He is not licensed and it expired in May of 2019. In Michigan, you must be licensed in order to file a mechanics lien on a residential property. How was he able to do this through the levelset website. ...Read More

In May of 2020, after many delays and issues, a well respected, established and reputable contractor was hired to do extensive repairs to our home after a severe hail storm when they simply walked off the job in September of 2021. The job was 99% finished and there was still a balance due of many thousand dollars. We have not heard from the company since! Did the company just write it off? Should I worry about future problems arising from this?...Read More
