We hired a contractor to replace our roof. They never finished the contract and the installation was not by trained labor that was contracted for. The installation is so bad that the entire roof needs to be replaced. After 1 ½ years of negotiating with the contractor, they have finally agreed to issue us a refund of our deposit and release us from the contract so that we can have another contractor reinstall our roof. Now we are concerned about the shingle manufacturer putting a lien on our property since they may not be paid if we receive our refund. How much time does the supplier have to place a lien after the product is delivered?...Read More

The GC who has a contract with the ownership group for a $4.5m senior living facility ( and he also happens to be one of the owners ) has a contract with me to provide construction consulting services for $50,000 and has paid me $15,0000 after loan closing to start construction last fall, is now refusing to pay the remainder of the money owed to me even after I completed my work due to the fact that his contract with the ownership group states if he is over budget he is not responsible for the overages but will not get paid any additional GC money. But the fact is he is not acting as a GC, he is actually an owners rep because he is not guaranteeing the overages which are over $1m dollards,, yes he totally underestimated the cost of the project because they did not want to get final bids and engineered plans until AFTER the construction loan closed. But my contract with his GC company does not state that if he doesnt get paid, I dont get paid so technically I am still owed my money and can file a contractors or professional lien against the building which he is part owner....Read More

We received an intent to lien from someone who did sales/ commission work for the contractor we hired for our roof project. We haven’t made the final payment yet. Will getting the lien waiver stop the potential lien?...Read More

We were hired directly by a public school and we went to send a preliminary notice and found out that's not possible since we're technically the GC in this situation. We just want to make sure that we're not going to miss any timelines in case getting payment becomes a problem later on. Is there anything we should do to ensure payment?...Read More

My husband is a self employed contractor. He provided an estimate to the home owner not a contract because it was a friend helping a friend! ???? He completed the job on July 30 sent an invoice on August 3rd. We did not send or have a preliminary lien letter. I did send an intent to file a lien on September 10th they signed for it on September 13. When is the first day that I can file the lien, and can I if we didn’t have a contract with the owner nor a preliminary letter was sent?...Read More
