I am a Michigan residential builder. I am building a house in Michigan for a client who lives in Illinois. The title complany has sent Illinois paper work that they intend for me to use. Issue #1: Do I have to use their paperwork? Specifically for lien waivers... their's requires notary and I have never done this. Hard enough to track down waivers and this just isn't going to fly. I know Michigan does not require notarizing waivers but not sure if they can force me. Issue #2: My company is listed several times on sworn statement. When one item has been paid in full, do I provide a full unconditional even though I still have $$ to draw under other catagories or would I provide a partial unconditional?...Read More

MichiganLien WaiversPreliminary Notice
I had a big problem with a water leak in my mobile home and I needed a plumber, then a mold company and now a construction company to do renovations to my home. My problem is with the mold removal company -Maher in Walled Lake, MI. First, they wanted $4,200 down -which I paid. Then, they wanted $3,250 more -which I paid. My homeowners insurance paid very little of this because of their mold exclusion-limitation of $500 and they have a $13,000 cap for the maximum they will pay out for my policy. Maher without giving me any pre-warning of the amount and no itemization of what the amount was for, went and billed my homeowners for $15,000! Of this, my insurance paid $5,292 which exhausted the remainder of my $13,000 cap. Now, Maher wants me to pay the full $15,000 to them! I don't have that money. All I have is the $5292 that my insurance company paid. Also, Maher has my dishwasher in their storage and won't return it to me. Do they have a legal footing to sue me and win and/or put a lien on my home? Thank you for your advice!...Read More

MichiganConstruction Contract
We had a brick cleaning contractor that hasn't completed the job and billed for the whole amount due. Then he is trying to charge $300.00 interest after only 7 days after I received the bill. He also said that he is going to lien the property and his lawyer fees are $3,800 which we will be charged. Our problem with paying the whole bill is that he caused damage to our customers brand new stainless steel hot tub with the acid wash he uses and us and the customer had to pay someone to try to buff it out to hopefully fix it. This was out of our pocket not the brick cleaners. We owe him $1,700 and we look it as a fair amount to pay him only $1,000 due to the damage and the uncompleted job. Can you please give me some advice for this situation on what we should do? Plus, is him trying to charge so much illegal?...Read More

I had my bathroom remodeled and the shower was done wrong and not up to code therefore another company has to redo it. I want the half back I paid to this company along with material that is now wasted so I can pay a new company to redo and buy all new material. I had 4 companies saying it was done wrong and will rot and mold in a short period of time n tiles would crack n fall apart. Do I need a lawyer or maybe take it to a small claims court?? Guy who did my shower had never tiles before and I had no clue on that. Thank you for any information...Read More
