Hello! I am a subcontractor working under a contractor. I do not do construction work, but provide tree removal services. In order to get paid, I've been asked to provide a sworn statement (in MI) along with my other paperwork. I don't know how to fill it out? I had no subcontractors under me. Just my employees. Do I list them? They aren't under contract per se, so I don't know how to fill in the form. ...Read More

I am starting a remodeling and maintenance business in Michigan. I am currently working on my builders license and have a website. My question is, are there things that I can't advertise on my website until I have a builders license? Or say things like replacing a toilet, unless I have or employ a licensed plumber?

I have reviewed your prompt payment resources which are extremely informative. Do you have any information on which states prompt payment legislation also applies to design consultants (architects/engineers) and not only contractors.
(note: I am looking for resources on all states - not just Michigan which was selected above)...Read More
We are a GC from MI, did a project for a LL at a mall in Lansing, MI. The Landlord still owes us roughly $53,000. If we send them an Intent to Lien notice, do we only have 10 days then to file the actual Claim of Lien? And, when does the 10 days start, from the time we send the Notice through your service or from the time they receive the Notice? We completed the project in June but there was an issue with the glass that took a while to get the subcontractor back to complete his work. Not sure if the LL is now dragging his feet , ie: playing games with paying us just because the glass correction work took so long ......Read More
Last summer I was hired as a subcontractor to perform about 90 commercial roof inspections using a drone, an rgb camera, and an infrared camera. The end client is a very large commercial real estate and property management company. I have only been paid about 75% of the contract's total value. Up until a couple of weeks ago the company that hired me was saying I will get paid in full when they get paid. I sent an email inquiring about the situation yesterday, and now the company who hired me says I must talk only to their attorney. I do not know if the end client has paid the company that hired me. I sent an email to the end client trying to find out if they've paid the company who hired me, but I'm not sure if they're going to respond to me. I would very much like to file a mechanics lien, but I'm not sure if the law allows me to since this isn't a construction situation, per se. The roof inspections definitely have to do with the properties' maintenance and upkeep. ...Read More
