Hired by contractor to the progress of work being done by a sub-contractor who was eventually let go. From that point on I was to prepare reports on the contractors project status and definiens in the work for a potential law suit. Reports were prepared and photos taken to substantiate the claims. Four binders w/ professional reports and more then 1500 photos were included in exhibits.
I am an architect in MN looking for a way to collect for services provided.
Lien waivers were required to accompany invoices to receive payment....Read More
We are a Levelset subscriber. We have contracted with MN United FC a professional soccer team who is a tenant (not the owner) in a facility owned by MN United National Sports Center.
Basically we are doing a tenant improvement to the soccer field making it more playable for the professional soccer team. Are we then considered the Prime Contractor and required to provide a General Contractor's Notice since we are not working for a GC? Or, because we are not working directly for the owner, should we provide a Lien Claimant's notice as if we were working for a GC?

Hi I am wondering if you can help me. We did a job at a ski resort pouring concrete ect. Do I need to send a preliminary notice before I can file a lien? If so, is the time frame to do so different then if it was a private residential job?
For MN PreLien requirements,
"If the property is wholly commercial (and not agricultural) and one of the following situations applies, the job is exempt from notice requirements:
(a) the job is to provide or add more than 5,000 total usable square feet of floor space; or"
Does this line refer to new construction?
So do I need to provide a prelien to a GC where I am a subcontractor working on a NON AG multi-use commercial property or wholly residential commercial property (apartment)?
I started remodeling a house for a contractor. We only have a verbal agreement on the work im supposed to do and he keeps adding more work and I'm thinking he's assuming I'm doing that for the same price that we discussed I told him that wasn't the case and he said we'll talk about it and he said that he would be fair I'm thinking he's not going to be so fair so when I write up my bill and mind you a lot of things I not going to charge him for but some things I am so I'm wondering do I need to and can I file a pre lien if I've already started the work I'm in Minnesota...Read More
We paid half down, and still owe half. The job was completed Sept 16, 2020. Bad workmanship needs correcting. Construction told us to have another construction company inspect job & write a report and they work fix those items. They will not. They wanted to repair select items and when we questioned what items, no more communication from them. Why haven't they filed a lien?
We don't think there is a contract, we have asked for a copy numerous times in the last year without success. In Mn do constr. companies have to give a written notice within 45 days of starting the work that they could file a lien?...Read More
I am a subcontartor that has been providing labor, materials, and payroll capital to Tenacious Builders and or TBI(he goes by 2 company names for suspicious reasons) since 3/16/20 and continuing forward . We agreed upon a 50% profit split. We have built 5 residential homes to pass inspection. One home that is complete, but yet to be inspected. Currently in the middle of building 2 more houses. I recently told him I cannot work with him anymore after we finish the 2 we started. I cannot work with him any longer because he doesn't show up to work very ofter, and the general contractor has noticed that. After I told tenacious I'm done working with them, he tells me that once these homes are finished I should expect a bill from him!? his reasoning being he is providing a forklift at $1000/house. he is under the impression id be paying $500/week for the forklift. this was never agreed upon in writing nor was our 50% profit split. I am yet to be paid for the house we completed that has yet to be inspected, and there are 2 more houses to be finished which puts 62,500 revenue on the line that he claims I will owe him money on. I feel as though I am being robbed, and manipulated. I have filed a preliminary notice on the house that is completed but yet to be inspected. what are my options mechanics lien, or suing in small claims? thanks Ken moran 6515921616...Read More
We are subcontractors in Minnesota and have received strong pushback from our GCs after they saw the contract amounts we were listing on our prelims. They mark up the prices and were angry that the property owner would see the markups from the contract amount we had listed. They said they won't work with us again if we do that. What are our options here? Could we list a $1 contract amount, or is that risky? What if we listed the higher marked-up amount?...Read More
I am a general contractor and subcontractor working with residential shower door glass and mirror installations, labor and material in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
The first time we are at the residence is to measure the site of the work. We do not charge for this measure. We order the material for the job the day the customer or the general contractor give us the go ahead. We don't typically do the installation until 10 days later.
What date should we pre-lien to start the clock in Minnesota and Wisconsin?...Read More
