I am the general contractor on a project, and the building owner made the first down payment and the second payment when we started the job, but the last payment they say they don't have the money right now but they will get it later on, according to contract it was due the day we finished, which is now 30 to 40 days Overdue, I would be OK with them making payments if I could set up some kind of payment details with a new contract, but I'm wondering how it works as far as filing a lien against the property if I make a new contract with payment details and then they make the payment or they don't make the payment as required?...Read More
I'm an electrical sub contractor on a residential job in North Carolina that has recently been completed. The home owner paid the GC, but the GC did not pay me. I filed a mechanic's lien through Levelset. The homeowner's atty. called my to tell me that I am wasting my time and money because the home owner has already paid the GC and that my only recourse is with the now bankrupt GC. He said the court will not make the home owner pay twice, and that if I pursue this, I will also have to pay all the court costs and attorney's fees because I will lose. Is he correct? Is the home owner clear because he paid the GC?...Read More
If a contractor does not file a mechanic's lien, but instead serves process to sue in small claims court, does the contractor waive their right to file a lien once they pursue civil litigation? In other words, can a contractor take someone to court, and then subsequently file a lien if the court case does not go the way they hoped?...Read More
I purchased a modular home at the end of January 2021. The manufacturer wants to cancel the contract due to shortage of materials and cost of materials at this time. The contract doesn't say anything about having the right to for the manufacturer to cancel. The only thing that I see is the right to make changes to the model, design or accessories. I've sold my home and my furniture. My belongings are in boxes and now I don't have a home coming :( Isn't this breach of contract? What can I do?
They have now offered me a home that is 100 sq ft smaller for the same price with no upgrades. I had about $6K in upgrades plus a $3K engineering fee in the original price. The engineered plan will no longer be needed with the smaller model. Although the contract price will remain the same, the whole thing equates to $13K more for a smaller home with no upgrades allowed. ...Read More

Good morning! I have a house bing built. I signed the contract Feb 2nd. I was told the house should be finished late July, early August. It’s June and they haven’t started yet. Got a call from my realtor and she told me they are about to start building but cost of lumber went up so now the house will be 25k more. I looked back over my contract and I saw nothing about them charge price after I signed. My options are I can add on the 25k and continue. Get my money back and find another house... but the thing with that is at this time there are no houses around with the price I would have paid for the house originally. House prices have skyrocketed since February. Well, my original question is can they just raise my price like that legally? Would I have a case to fight it and keep my price the same? ...Read More
