I am a retired Licensed Builder, in the state of Michigan. I currently operate as a Handyman service.
Recently, a friend of a friend recommeded me to repair an "old crooked wooden fence eyesore" and install new adjoining wooden fence to be close in appearance.
Homeowner bought most of materials, (not all) and paid for all required rental equipment.
I didn't really require a up front deposit of 50% ("friend"/trust???), but my friend suggested to homeowner it would be best, which I appreciated.
Many unforseen problems with out of alignment wooden older fence, but it was corrected to homeowners satisfaction, before starting newer thicker wooden fence install, Spent more time and labor on older wooden fence.
Before, completing "older wooden fence" homeower requested additional home repair/maintenance services, because they appreciated my attention to details.
On November 28, 2020, we ( included two helpers) completed all work as requested. Homeowner provided me with a check for the work "we" had completed. The Problem was that the check was for the original estimated balance, plus $200.00... that homeower "hoped would make me happy", she states.
I told the homeowner that I had not determined the final balance of additional requested services, and would advise accordinngly.
Homeowner, was not happy, that I had not cashed the check, after a few days. Even after I submitted Final Balance including every thing, viaDirect Message to cellphone, with some "No Charge concessions". Homeowner stops payment on original check and remits Cashier check for the same amount. I didn't discover this until after the Holidays, thinking homeowner had included a little "extra to make me happy", again.
Homeowner refuses now to respond to Direct Message via her cellphone, So, I sent a 5 page Notice to Set the Record Straight (Certified).
Homeowner responds, with copy to attorney, saying I was threatening to: 1.) file a Mechanics Lien/Small claim court 2.) she would call City Inspection ( ignoring the fact that I told about inspections. that she refused) 3.) I am unlicensed and require a written contract ($600.00 or less) 4.) Saying that she "hope that would clear up thematter".
Q: How would this matter be view via Michigan House Bill 4282?
More specific details can be provided.

Hello, I would love and sincerely appreciate the assistance of a lien expert. I have a $30,000 Construction Lien that I am looking to commence as timely as possible in Michigan. However, I have had no luck with locating a lien liaison who can assist with filing the claim. Do you have any contacts or websites that you would reccommend? Please let me know either way. Thank you in advance.
All the best,
