I am the office manager for a general contracting company. We performed labor and purchased materials with the agreement that all materials would be reimburse and all labor performed by us would be paid. It has now been months and this company has not paid us for everything owed. I sent out a lien notice and have not heard anything, I assume the next step is to file a lien. In order to file a lien, do I need the home owners name and address or do I file it against the company that owes us for the work & material?...Read More

I have assigned a contract to an end buyer for a property owned by a foreign family that needs to get an ITIN and FIRPTA from the IRS. I have expressed upfront to the end buyer that the closing process could take months since application for ITIN and FIRPTA could take weeks. There was a delay on the seller's end to start the application of the ITIN and FIRPTA because the end buyer wanted to renegotiate the price of the property. On top of that, the previous government shutdown delayed the process as well. As we come nearer to the closing deadline, I requested a contract deadline extension from the seller which they willingly agreed/approved. Upon letting the end buyer know that the closing deadline has been extended in case the ITIN and FIRPTA won't get on time, the end buyer threatened that they have been patient long enough and will require either: 1) addendum to include an allowance for an extension of a per diem charge of $100 past the agreed upon 12 week date. or if I do not agree with this, 2) they intend to place a lien for the "executed labor" that has already been completed. Key notes are: 1) No one allowed the end buyer to do any work on the property and; 2) I just checked the property this week and there are no significant changes or improvements on it....Read More

We have a situation where we have paid out 112 thousand on a home improvement project on a 145k job. The contractor was terminated due to many reasons but primarily poor craftsmanship. When we were asked to settle the paperwork is so poor neither the contractor nor us as homeowners can come up with a number. What kind of professional can evaluate our case? Binding or non binding arbitration is not in the contract nor is there a mediation clause. We want to be fair, but no one can figure out what the 112 went towards. There also are 6 change orders to consider. ...Read More
