Is it necessary for a general contractor hired by a property owner to send a notice of intent to lien before they file a mechanics lien? If you don't send the notice of intent, will that affect the lien if it's been filed?...Read More

we are a supplier/manufacturer. we have a contract with a subcontractor to provide some material. We do not have a contract with the GC. our customer has been asking for a lien waiver but keeps insisting we need to sign off on it as if it says we are dealing with them and with the GC. (They want us to sign a notary statement about their payment applications to the GC.) This doesn't seem right since we are not a party to the prime contract. What are our next steps in this situation? ...Read More

I sent the original proposal to Fortify Holdings, LLC. I did work on four hotels and our agreement was that I was to be paid for each property upon completion. They paid me for the first three hotels and a partial payment for the last one but they still owe me $3488.00 and it has been over a month since I have invoiced them and their representative who I have been dealing with won't answer his phone or return my calls. I had problems getting my money on each hotel but they really needed the work done and I wouldn't move onto the next hotel until they paid me for the work that I completed. Now on the last check they aren't wanting to pay me. My question is who do I send the Intent To File A Lien to: Fortify Holdings, LLC or CV The Jackson, LLC where the work was actually done?...Read More

I hired a contractor to reface kitchen cabinets. When he showed me the sample cabinet it was wrong color. He is refusing to fix it. I don't want the color he painted. I told him to change the color to what I wanted. He is refusing and said he is going to file contractors lien. My kitchen is all torn apart, drawers are gone, no water, no stove, half of the counter tops are gone. Can he file a lien? What are my options?...Read More

I had a rent to own contract for one year. The manufactured home was completely unlivable. The bank would not even Finance the home. I had a year to fix it up with my own money and get it financeable while I also paid $1000 a month in rent that would not go towards any payment for the home. I spent over 20,000 out of my pocket to completely gut out and remodel this manufactured home with a contract between the owners and I that they would sell me the property for 210,000 once the year was up. With the stipulation that I would have 60 Days from the end of the contract to close out the sale of the home. Right Before the year was up I contacted a loan manager to get the loan ready and going. For some reason the loan manager was not able to close out the home by the 60 days even though I was in constant contact with him and he kept reassuring me everything was fine and we would be closing out on time. He was also for some reason in contact with the home owner letting them also know the progress of the loan. Right before the 60 days was up the loan manager told me he would not be able to close out the loan on time and he would not move any further with the home loan unless the owners agreed to give him 2 more weeks which they decided no they did not want to do. I should also mention I had to pay for the house to get appraised as part of the loan of buying it and it was appraised a little over $100,000 over the cost they were selling it to me for . I just went to court for eviction on this property and have 3 days to get out with no equity reimbursement or material reimbursement for all the work that I have put into it. What can I do about this and who would I talk to. I have a contractor's license would I be able to put a lien on the manufactured home until I am reimbursed for payment for the work that I've done?...Read More

I am a GC and contracted a whole home remodel for a client. They wanted to move quickly and were hoping to move into home by February 28, 2022. The permitting process took 3 months when we had never had it take longer than 3 weeks. The county was implementing a new system of processing permits and had a huge backlog. We added a significant amount of change orders on top of the original contract and ended up complete enough for them to move in on 5/31/22. They are claiming we owe around $25,000 due to delay costs for them, as they sold their home and had to stay at an AirBNB and store their belongings. On top of that we are still owed approximately $64,000 and they are saying they will settle for no more than a wash. Meaning owing us $0. They hired multiple contractors outside of our purview that cost us a significant amount of time to coordinate with and supervise. They also added multiple small projects to my crew, and the work was completed that they are now claiming they should not have to pay for after telling my project manager they would happily pay us for any of the additional work. They are saying they are happy to go to court and they are stubborn. I don't believe they have a legal leg to stand on, but would appreciate some insight on next steps....Read More

Does House Bill 2415 -- ORS 279C.570 actually mean that you have to place retainage in a third party escrow account? We track interest on retainage withheld ourselves and pay out accordingly. Is this statute saying that interest just has to be accrued on contracts over $500,000 or that it actually has to be placed with a THIRD PARTY in an escrow account? ...Read More

So I am a contractor and was hired to pour concrete and erect a building. Concrete done, building fully erect, then the owner wants the building to be insulated. So we added to the contract. Anyway in an off day (Sunday) the owner and his wife decided to go and “work” on the project building”, we know this becumause he told my workers and also stated this fact in 2 of his emails as well as a termination contract between he and us. Anyway, since after that time he has been nitpicking and breathing down our necks about every screw and measurement every second and frankly we are sick of it!!! We asked for a progress puke t and that’s when things changed… he refuses. Now he has a termination contract sent to me and demand befor he would issue half of the progress payment that I asked for ? So now we want to as well just walk away from this project and just get paid for what we have done but he won’t. ...Read More

Received "Notice to file lean" from a contractor. I had never heard of this contractor, certainly had not hired him. Turns out, my contractor had hired him, without my knowledge to do some work. There was a disagreement about the job between them and now I am in the middle of it. Does the "Unknown" contractor have the right to file a lean ? Thank you Keith Bishop...Read More
