We completed work on a customer's home and sent her an invoice on April 20, 2022. She is a real estate agent. She paid part of the invoice. There is a balance of 8900. She has listed the house for sale and it shows that it has a pending contract on it. She has not replied to any phone calls, texts, or emails. Can I place a lien on this property before it sells....Read More

We are a subcontractor filing a lien for 2 properties completed for Barrow Builder Group in Texas. They have a partial balance due for retainage on each. A non-optional question to complete asks "Identify All months When You Furnished Services For Which Payment is Claimed". The retainage was held from the 1st payment forward. That would have started the purchasing of materials, etc. Should I list all of the months through the final month last delivered? ...Read More

I am a material supplier on a job here in Texas. We provided ready mix concrete on a job, our customer was a sub contractor. The GC and Owner are the same entity. I have only been paid about half of the $20,645.28 that I am owed on the project. The Owner/GC has paid the sub (my customer) and he signed a lien waiver. I sent them the monthly notice but just received an email from them stating they are disputing it because they paid the subcontracor. My question is, is the lien still valid since I have no been paid and did not sign a waiver?...Read More

I had a contractor not do driveway work as he stated he was going to do (method) and he did more work than I asked for and agreed upon now he wants more money after he was paid the original amount. Can he file a lien on my business property or business? There was no written contract. ...Read More

The company that received the notice is no longer the property owner. The old property owner that received the notice wants some kind of waiver that their subdivision doesn't have a lien. I'm not entirely sure what they want, or what I can give them. ...Read More

I have a public project, not with TxDOT nor wholesale water supply, with work valued under $400,000. Reading the FAQs, there is a statement that the Texas public retainage laws apply to projects valued more than $400,000. However, the very next answer states that the retainage applies on public work contracts valued at less than $5M and that the retainage cannot be more than 10-percent. Please clarify. If applicable, can the retainage be reduce and under what conditions?...Read More

Currently working on a Multifamily apartment community property. We are doing large volumes of repairs that are adding up and the current owner is in the process of selling the property. Once sold, will I still have lien rights on the work performed or will I lose rights since the property is under new ownership soon?...Read More

I have a customer that is adamant that they shouldn't be billed for sales tax because they are paying the sales tax on the full amount of the project but can't supply me with a direct pay certificate. I went through a tax audit last year and they confirmed I was doing everything correctly in regards to a rental as stated in the Texas Comptroller ruling #3.294, so no tax due. I believe that they should remove all rentals from their project and pay the sales tax on the balance. So they have paid for everything except for the sales tax billed. Can I file a lien on just the taxes due?...Read More

I am a sub sub contractor to an electrician. He owed me money on two projects and thankfully on the larger project I was able to get a copay check from the GC. I think this has made the contractor decide not to pay me for the other project which he owes $9,519.20. I have long since missed any chance to file a lien on the project. Is there any options, or do I need to turn this into a collection company? ...Read More

I'm not sure if this falls under supplier to supplier category, but I think it may. We are a materials supplier and are considering working with a concrete plant where the materials we supply and deliver will be blended into the concrete that is then delivered out to another job site. I believe we would fall as a Tier 1 supplier and my question would be can we file against the job where the concrete was delivered if we do not receive payment from the concrete plant who originally hired us to deliver the material to be blended?...Read More

Sub filed a mechanics lien on a Texas property that was labeled as homestead when filed (but not a homestead today). He also did not send any pre notices or notice that he actually filed a lien affidavit. What are my rights? The contractor was paid, but now learning they are related!...Read More
