Labor provided on new residence under construction. Not a homestead at time of work provided. Owner refuses to pay remaining $15k citing false claim of improper install. Lien filed by me. Expires July 15th. Can lien be renewed before Jul 15? If so, is their special language for "renewal" of a lien affidavit?

My friend who is a disabled teacher had a contractor do some work in 1995, which he did not complete.

(The landowner that we have been sending notices to has called us about our own client and believes they are doing this fraudulently.)...Read More
I just had a conversation with one of our sales people and learned we have a customer that is not providing accurate job site info. They will order from us and give us one Walmart location but then take that product and actually use it at a different Walmart location as they see fit.
