The insurance company I'm dealing with doesn't want to pay for the materials we purchased on the month we actually purchased them, but wants to pay us using prices from a different month which of course are at a lower cost than what we paid....Read More

Hi, my then business partner used my business LLC credit card to purchase materials and labor to fund one of his housing projects in Missouri. He took my credit card statements to obtain draws from an Illinois bank that was funding the project. However, one month he kept $40k+ of the draw for himself, instead of sending it to me to pay off the credit card. Now he says he can't pay off the balance of $49k+ on my card. Obviously, the credit card company is going to sue me even though I never used the card myself. Is there anyway I can put a lien on the properties?...Read More

I'm a general contractor who provides tree services to my customers. I was contracted by the occupant/owner (at least he said he owned the property and residence) of a residence located in St. Louis county, MO. After completing 90% of the job the occupant/owner sent a text message telling me not to come back and that he had moved the Bobcat I had rented to complete his job from his backyard out into the street in front of his residence and that I had better hurry if I wanted to retrieve said property. He also kept my climbing rope and carabineer as I had left them on the base of the tree I was planning on dropping that day (the day he sent the text telling me not to come back). He knew going into the job that it was a $3,500 contract of which he paid $200 cash on day 2 of the job. The day he said not to return would have been day 4 (and the final day) of the job. He will not acknowledge any invoices and ignores all attempts to call/speak with him. Since he refuses to communicate I began the process of putting a lien on his property during which I discovered he is not the owner of the property, his sister is. I am unsure how this effects my right to file a lien. So, can I put a lien on the property despite the fact that my contract was with the occupant, not the owner? And if I can, what do I need to do and how do I do it? If I can't put a lien on the property since the contract was made with the occupant not the owner what recourse do I have? Is there anything I can do to try to get him to honor our contract and pay his bill? ...Read More

What can a homeowner do when a contractor (roofer) does shoddy, incomplete work on contracted roof system and Fascia. 50% paid, remainder still due upon completion of work. Work commenced 9.28.2.22. Ongoing and incomplete. Roofers were supposed to replace bad, rotten decking. 92 year old plank decking, 60% bad, rotten decking. <1% replaced. Planks bowing, cracked w/ >1 1/2 " spaces, some planks half gone and blown out from "shiners" / bad nailing. Many nails hanging in space, through asphalt shingles only, not secured to decking. My attic filled with an unreasonable amount of debris. Construction owner said if he had done the job he would have replaced some other planks... Asphalt shingles are bowed and warped. Confirmed by field rep on 10.31.22 when he came to respond to my leaking roof. Bowing and warping has gotten worse, (more shingles) since that date. Roof was leaking in one place after roof system installed on 10.31.22. Roof is now leaking from a second area since 12.14.22. Contractor came out on 12.17.22, could not fix the leak, has been putting me off since. Per the contract Ridge ventilation was to be installed, instead they just replaced two turbines. The specified underlayment brand on contract was substituted with two other brands. Underlayment was not properly installed; does not cover entire decking. Drip edge installed behind gutters: water now dripping down Fascia. Could not open my garage door for one month because they blocked it with miss-measured rake Fascia, still they wrapped this with aluminum. As of 1 20. 2023 I can only open my garage door partially. Fascia was supposed to be cut back to remove 2'' rot from eave(s) ends, then aluminum wrapped. Roofers cut back to soffits 20", rendering my gutter system useless at that juncture and destroying the aesthetic of my 92 year old Craftsman home. Fascia work egregious; exposed wood, not measured, cut and bent or installed properly. They have come out twice to fix this. The owner admitted their first guy had little experience, the second person could not do it either. The second person told me quote: "it was not his problem, he has other problems" The owner confessed that they don't really do fascia work... ? All Fascia work remains incomplete and shoddy. This is a partial list only of the shoddy, defective and incomplete work as of 1.20.2023 Damage to my property: This includes House, Front Portico, Attached Back Porch and Garage. Leaking roof 10.31.22 - current Water damage and mold in Attic as a result of Leak#1 and now leak# 2 Pounds of debris and plank decking on my attic floor. (this is a usable attic, not storage only) Damage to garage Gutters from improper removal, now unusable, must be replaced. Trusses on garage blown out from "miss nailing", particularly on their protruding, exposed ends. Damage to the cement board siding on back porch(12 sections damaged: cracked and fallen out) Damage to my wood deck, that was not protected properly as advised by Co. Damage to existing Fascia/Eaves PLEASE, what are my options? I am concerned because I do not think this is simply a case of my "deposit Back" but all of the damages and the cost to re-do this correctly, which I contracted them to do, and most likely will include tearing off the entire roof including the decking and replacement of all Eaves and Fascia? additional notes. 1) The roofing contractor at no point during the project discussed anything or any issues with me. 2) The field rep. was adamant that that my roof needed to be replaced BEFORE winter and it seems to me this was an "end of season" rush job. 3) I have running txt threads w/ filed rep and Owner since the onset of this nightmare project. Any guidance is much appreciated. My home is in St. Louis City, MO. Thank you very much!! ...Read More

I won an eviction case and wrote out my rent check. After doing so i realized that i forgot to prorate on the first month l lived there so i wrote a letter to my landlord showing where i prorated and wrote a new check i wrote in the memo paid in full through oct 2022 and also ask my landlord to give me back the other check that wad the wrong amount and not prorated.

Worked under contract for 5 yrs. on project. I resigned and did 30 days. I was not paid final 2 invoices (about $30k). I read the statute to say that i'm a direct relationship and in Missouri do not need to give 10 day notice. Is that correct. My last day working was June 15, 2022 - almost 6 months. Is this the timeframe that i need to file the lien before next week? Can Levelset help? Then if they don't pay, i have another 6 months to foreclose? Just want to confirm my understanding. Mainly timeframe and not having to give the notice... because after 10 days, then i'd be past the 6 month point....Read More
