Our home builder left lots of items unfinished and just had materials delivered and left leaning against our home. They did not install some items, (pot filler and more), and some work must be redone. (A brick knee-wall was built off-center and must be removed and rebuilt in order to complete the sunroom) We have discovered that they buried large amounts of debris in the yard. We discovered this because they covered this debris with dirt and did not provide erosion control or sod in this area, causing the items to be exposed by rains. Significant erosion now exists. They were finally told to leave our property and not return after they entered our residence without permission or us present, two weeks after we had closed and moved in. They claimed that they were doing a final walk-thru. Now they are claiming that we owe them for the materials and labor on work not completed. We offered to allow them to retrieve the materials they delivered without notice to our home. They would not respond. Next they filed notice of a Contractors Lien through an attorney's office.
We are a supplier to a sub. We received a letter from CNA Surety . The statement below is a paragraph in the letter.
" Additionally, as this a supplier payment issue involving a supplier to supplier of sub, under MS Code, liability for the surety stops at the first supplier."
Is this a true statement? As a supplier are we unable to file against the bond?...Read More

Took a metal roof job with a contractor over the phone at 12:30 January 27 2021 Wednesday met up with the contractor the next morning Thursday January 28th 2021 at the job and start installing roof and contractor informed me that he had to take off for the weekend to take care of his wife health issues and offered me. to subcontract. my help so I then gave the contractor my estimated cost and we agreed that he would provide supplemental labor and I would reduce the cost by 50% and we agreed that I would try to bring help and he would pay them out of his 50 percent and we would see each other and try to complete the project the project together the following Monday .The contractor left early with the supplement labor and i stayed. Then before I ended my day on Thursday the homeowner came out and i asked him if it would be okay if i left my tool trailer there for the weekend which was of course okay
After i unhooked the trailer the homeowner asked me to give him my discretion on certain items and the roof that were completely done wrong against agreed contract between him and the contractor (ie that old Eve drip be removed new would be secured accordingly for wind load) at this point a lot of the house at already been roofed. by the contractor with numerous discrepancies and complaint by the homeowner that he was not pleased with the quality of work and now 50% of the already installed roof would have to be removed to allow old Eave drip to be removed and installation to continue. At this point I decided it would be in my better interest to consult with the contractor before I ended up doing work that I have not agreed upon and suspended my work *which was not under any kind of time schedule* that was agreed upon in our original contract and that renegotiations would be in order which would have to take place Monday after his return from taking care of his business over the weekend I had talked to the man has several times on one of my phone number and was certain he had that number and he did but he failed to call the number and communicate me anyway and went to the job Saturday after I excuse myself for Friday due to certain discrepancies that would inhibit my my work and payment for agreed work to be done Plus it rained on that Saturday so I didn't think twice about what was going on with the job Then before noon on said Saturday without any authorization or consent of the homeowner the contractor intentionally and vindictively with malice did call the tow truck company and fraudulently impersonated the( homeowner) property owner to the tow company and had my tool trailer towed away and placed in their impound yard . by the way I didn't even have all the materials needed to complete the task( sidewall flashing) that needed to be installed as the roof system is being installed so I was kind of had a stagnant point in the performance of completing my agreed work they homeowner have no complaints with me leaving my trailer there I knew that I would be back to help complete his roof cuz I would not leave my trailer with over $3000 worth of equipment inside. And not come back. Without any thought I showed up on Monday morning and discovered that my tool trailer had been towed away and that the homeowner had no involvement in action the contractor eventually showed up to the job and I am that he had permission from the local police authorities do what he did but that was not true I checked so I had the same sheriffs to come to the scene so there wouldn't be any violance or anything bad happen and when i explained the infraction to the sheriff they basically told me that it was a civil issue and I would have to sue the contractor for his previous Act against my person which I have already checked and found out that Fraudulant impersonation is definitely a criminal offense but on top of this my job was terminated with the contractor with no reason or notice of default and I was forced to leave the property without pay and equipment even though I had to gather up my ladders which were still on the job, he may have needed those but my trailer was still impounded with a $300 Tow and impound fee attached and I was given no relief to correct the problem or work it out or caught up correct things and resolve the situation so I would like to pursue any and all avenues to be reimbursed for my time not work equipment the tort that was imposed against me punitive damages losing work and life to deal with this situation and having to go retrieve my property that was taken without any due process of law and in fact there's a violation of my 14th Amendment rights what a mess huh I can't believe that people act and react and do evil to each other when we're all trying to work together to accomplish a task...Read More
