MissouriNotice of Intent to Lien
I am currently mid-project, and the work by the contractor does not meet code, is generally shoddy, and the original contractor has begun to sub-contract out the work to temp agency hires. I've paid approximately a third of the original quote, and I'd like to have them simply stop where it is and take what I've paid so far as final payment, so that I can get a better quality contractor in to complete the project, but not end up with a lien. My "contract" with them consisted of receiving a quote and making an initial payment against an Intuit Quickbooks invoice....Read More

We were building a deck for a customer and 3/4 of the way thru we just decided the materials for the railing system, the customer had made several changes thruout the project. We had her pick the hardware and style of materials and she gave us a check for the exact amount of the estimate we gave her. We went ahead and ordered the materials. Some of them were available that day so we started to put those on the deck. 2 days later she said she never approved the materials and her husband intimidated us with physical harm to not come back. Since then she has stopped payment on all 3 checks, even though they had already cleared our bank. Out account is a mess with fees. Should we file a lien or just go to small claims? What is the best and fastest way to recoup our losses. They will not answer calls or messages. The amount is 7011.10 ...Read More

I was unable to show the court certain documents in the trial de novo that clearly showed the amounts I was in court for and was never asked how much money I was there to recover. The opposing attorney objected to all of my evidence that hand writing on them. All I was able to present were some photos of before and after the contractor work but not my documents that show how much it cost me to correct the defendant’s incomplete work, so those costs were never seen by the judge. He then ruled in favor of the defense in the end because I was unable to show a decreased value of my property although he did say there were clearly damages and the defendant did admit to never returning to finish the job. Anything I can do as far as appeals or entering the costs associated with the repairs I had to make? All the judge needed to see in the end were those documents I had right there all along....Read More
