The contract was signed, but are there other courses of action, such as filing a lawsuit against the property owner(such as unjust enrichment)? Also is there a responsibility on the part of the GC who is claiming not to have been paid. Do they have the responsibility to verify they have not been paid, and also to diligently attempt to pursue the payment through legal means? I checked in the jurisdiction and no court case or liens have been filed by the GC....Read More

Contracted company to replace windows and do specific siding repairs. We were told it would take 2 to 3 days. 38 days later the work was not complete and some not done to standard. We negotiated a price of $1,500 less than estimated to accept work "as is" and we paid such through our financial institution. My wife wrote up a factual review of the company afterward which was non-inflammatory but did reflect the negative characteristics of the work completed/not completed. One month later, in retaliation, the company placed a $1,500 lien against our home. The way I found out was by verifying our mortgage had sent the correct payoff documents to the county records office and it was they who notified me of the lien, not the contractor....Read More

VirginiaMechanics LienPreliminary Notice
GC paid sub for work he did, he believed he should have gotten the rest of $$ for completing2/3 of work, GC said he did not perform 2/3 yet, so will not get finale payment. He had a fit, she offered to bring in an inspector to decide if he completed said 2/3, another fit and said no. He is also claiming in lien materials not there, but not telling of his improper use of materials and GC having to purchase more materials. Also seeking more monies for travel and lodging because he thought he should get more but was paid the agreed upon amount. And now he says he should get the monies for having to travel to site and unable to do work because no materials were there to work with and could have taken other jobs. Does he have a valid lien?...Read More

We were told by the State Department that they did not have a payment bond and were instead allowed to submit a letter of credit. Is this possible? Is it possible to file a claim against the letter of credit, then?...Read More

In February, 2018, we performed mitigation services on a military facility for a first notice of loss call initiated by, whom we later found out after the fact , to be a hired government contractor representative of the government facility. Throughout the mitigation, the contractor led us to believe that the government facility would be paying the mitigation fees. After months of collection efforts, the military facility on 6/28/18 informed me that there was a bond against the contractor and provided me the bond company name and bond number. I have filed a claim with the bond company, and provided them their required documents to settle this claim against their insured. I would like to know what my company's rights are and the next step necessary to collect our service fees....Read More

I am an Architecture firm who contracted with a developer to do permit drawings on a property the developer owns. Terms of the contract state that the balance of payment is due upon the sale of the property. however, the developer has not worked on the project in 6-8 moths and we know to be struggling to keep other jobs afloat. Is a Mechanics Lien the right way to secure that we are paid upon sale of the house? He is not in breach of Contract yet, and the work we performed was over the 90 ago so not sure we can file a lien. We do not want to be in a situation where if the developer does sell (prior to completion or after completion) to pay off debts owed to others and we are not then compensated. Appreciate any advise you can offer. Thanks, Chris...Read More
