MinnesotaMechanics LienRecovery OptionsRight to Lien
We are a fabrication company who fabricated a large project for another businesses facility. We estimated the project and they submitted 2 PO's for us to proceed. The project was completed the end of January of this year and we invoiced them at the time of the last shipment. We have been trying to get payment from them and they have been unresponsive. I did not file a notice of intent to lien since I missed the deadline but I did file a mechanics lien and after Levelset did all their research to get it done it was 2 days past the deadline. My question is what is the best route to get our money from this company? Can I still foreclose on the lien? We are a small business and cannot afford to not get paid on this project. We supplied all the material, labor, consumables and had to pay the labor, vendors and taxes. I would appreciate any advice on how to move forward....Read More

Scenario One I am a sub-contractor working for a prime doing Information Technology work. I submit my time sheet every 30 days. However the prime informed us via phone within 3 days to obtain payment but payment took 10 days, is this acceptable? Scenario Two Sub-contractor creates a time sheet every 30 days, then Prime indicated two weeks after time sheet submission. Prime will pay the sub-contractor two weeks of pay (80 hours), and continue to pay sub-contractor every two weeks until contract expires? Seems prime is hold funds back for 30 days (160 hours), is this acceptable?...Read More

MinnesotaBonding Off Lien
I'm a sub and was painting new construction for a gc. We had an arraignment on payment and when I asked to be paid for work completed pet our agreement he kept putting me off. So I stopped worrking until I received a check. When I did get check it was not the correct amount and he then told me I couldn't not show up for a month and then come back and finish. Then he refused to pay me the rest of what I was owed. So I sent him an intent to lien if no payment within 10 days . Now he is demanding I come and complete within 24 hours or he says I'm refusing. I still have not been correctly compensated. I told him I would come but I want a punch list and clear parameters on payment and amount and he refuses. Says I'm playing games. I feel he is trying to intimidate me. What are the legalities here with this and time frames....Read More

We filed a Claim on Bond on 11/01/2022. tn e the last date we furnished labor/material was on 04/28/2022. The bonding company has pushed off the bond claim stating that this is a bone fide dispute between parties. The Contractor is holding our money and is refusing payment on this public project. What is our next step to enforce the Claim on Bond? Thank you...Read More

Customer has $20450 contract, and owes us $10571.09. We opted to no file a mechanics lien because we thought the customer would pay, but they didn't. Now we're in a situation where we can't file a lien. We could possibly try to get this settled in small claims court but not sure what the limits are, try to submit to a collections company but not sure what options we have. Customer isn't returned any calls or emails....Read More
