I have been managing the development improvements on a 13 unit project in Payson for over 2 years now. I was always told that I would receive $10,000 up front and the remaining management fee would be paid when the owner sold the improved lots. I have been paid $9500 to date and the owner now refuses to sign any kind of agreement for the rest when he sells the lots. The work is about 85% finished, and I suspect he's just been holding me off until the work is all done, and then not pay me anything more. I told him I will not do any further work on the project unless he either pays be the remaining management fee, or he signs an agreement that he will pay me when he sells the lots. He still refuses to pay me anything. What are my rights as far as filing a lien on the project for the remaining management fee? I am a licensed real estate agent. ...Read More

My fence contractor began work back in the beginning of May. They never filed a Preliminary Notice. Their work is terrible and while they have now completed the job yesterday (8/19/2021) to the best of their ability though not perfect, the refuse to take less than full payment. They want to put a lien on my house for the balance of $1877 as I am willing to still give $1877 additional to the $3755 owed. I am also the leasee of the property owned by a trust where I am the beneficiary, but not the trustee. Can they put a lien this late or take any action against me for non full payment? Thanks!...Read More

A plumber installed new showers and vanities in my house. They did not properly install the showers leaving big gaps and leaking as well as all the sinks were leaking. I am in the process of getting all of those things fixed and collecting the documented cost bids, so I know the total cost I am out before I settle the payment with the original plumber who seems to not know how to do plumbing. He is threatening a lien. Can he put a lien on my property? What laws are there to protect the homeowner from situations like this? What is my recourse? ...Read More

We have a supplier that has recently added a 5-7% shipping surcharge to all orders. We usually include those charges in the amount billed to our customer, and they agree to it up front. But if it comes down to a legal battle and a mechanics lien is filed, will the filing for surcharges hold up in court? Otherwise, it could potentially cost us thousands of unrecoverable dollars....Read More
