I have State/Fed project in MS that I had previously had closed, due to project completion. We closed this about 5-6 months ago. However, new material is being sent to this project now. Do I need to re-open this job or open a new job and go through the normal job set-up steps? In this case, I would not notice the job, but have my applicable bond information prepared....Read More

MississippiBond Claims
The customer told us that she had investors in her real estate agency that would be buying floors from us. We informed her that we could give her the discounted price on her personal property because of that and we waived the shipping charge. Since the client is refusing to pay and she told me she would not be sending us any business through her company we will be charging her the regular amount of 2.15 a sq ft rather than 1.80 a sq ft for flooring. We also want to charge her for shipping and we need to add taxes since she has stated she will not be paying through her business. Is that ok to charge her what she should be paying rather than the discount price? She says she is not paying because her husband installed the floors and they are popping loose. He didn't install them correctly and uniclick floors in a plywood floor trailor are causing the flooring to detach when the plywood caves. We did not install so we are not responsible for the problems she is having with installation. We offered to come look at it and help her husband fix the problem but she would have to pay us for installation help....Read More

Customer is now refusing to pay and holding over GC head we are not licensed...threatening to turn us into State of MS in which she said we will be fined 3x’s the amount of 95k job and in turn keeping Insurance money for herself.

According to the tax records, my information was correct. I had the recorded owners served via certified mail. According to the former owners, after being served, they do not own the property any longer. Is my lien still valid, even with the incorrect information? Do I need to amend my lien to include the new owners, even though they are not on the tax rolls as being the owners?...Read More
