I hired a company to paint our new home before we moved in. Turns out, he had day workers painting with little experience. I have about 50 pictures worth of issues. They did a sub par job, broke a couple of small items, didn't rehang any lights or wall plates, didn't complete project, etc. I emailed the owner (who I signed the contract with) telling him I wasn't satisfied with the job, and wasn't paying remaining balance. He sent me an unnotarized Notice of Furnishing. And his one painter texted me saying "he" was going to put a lien on my property bc the owner hasn't paid him. Do I need to do anything?...Read More
I had a contractor work on my kitchen remodel. Start date was suppose to be on 17th of May with an end date two weeks. They completed some work and then he didn't show up for 3 days within those two weeks. I took a day off from work for him to complete some electrical work and he didn't show up. My counter top was delayed for a week due to poor measurements of the cabinet spacing. There is noticeable unsatisfactory work done on the kitchen. I had to hire someone else to do the work as he backed out of the job and didn't want to show up as I had requested. I then stopped the payment of 1900 due to loss of time due to paying another person to finish the work. What should I do now as he is threatening me with a foreclosure on my house. BTW there was no CONTRACT signed. ...Read More
We are based in VA, and our Subcontracts are governed by the state of VA. Additionally, the Owner that we contract with has their own required forms. Can we ask Subcontractors to sign forms IN ADDITION to the statutory form in order to get paid?
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.

Hello, I had my old cast iron sewer pipes trenches out and replaced and the plumbing company didn’t seem qualified to do backfill and cement work. They didn’t compact the fill nor pin the new cement to old.
Insurance company took the lien agreement out of the noterized contract just because the register of deeds rejected it because it violated 2 of the Michigan Compiled laws for signatures, and than file suit with the rest of the contract that they like without the lien agreement and rejection letter from register of deeds...Read More
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
