I am a material supplier and I filed a prelim the next day after materials were delivered and it looks like in NH a prelim needs to be filed before delivery. Am I still protected if the prelim is sent but is late?...Read More

Hi, I have an issue with a customer, I renovated a pool and installed all new equipment. I provided an estimate to the customer in March and received a 30% deposit. Over the course of the renovation the customer requirements changed and I sent him a new estimate in August. I was supposed to collect 30% when the equipment was installed and the final payment when water was delivered. The equipment was installed the say day the water was delivered and I did not collect any money. Now the home owner states he isn't happy with the job and has not payed me. I have offered him a warranty on the work and asked him what he wants and he has still not made any effort to pay me. Can I put a lien on his property even though I don't have a signed contract? The work was done in NH....Read More

I’m a GC and have a customer refusing to pay amounts due and change order amounts. Claiming tile work we did in the bathroom we did wasn’t a professional job. They saw the tile as we were doing it and had no issues, In fact the tile was down for 6 weeks before they said anything. We were Working on other projects in house when it was brought up and after they reached the invoice containing two change orders. ...Read More

I'm guessing all lien waivers need to be notarized? Any that I have ever seen needed to be anyway. I just want to verify that as a registered agent for a business in the state of New Hampshire, I also handle all accounts receivable, invoicing, and all other payment forms or issues. I can sign a construction lien waiver on behalf of the company? ...Read More

I sent a customer a proposal with a request for deposit if they accepted the job. Customer sent the deposit check so the order for materials was placed (special order). The customer asked to hold the check because they were having second thoughts, so the check was held while the return options of the order were figured out. Customer cancelled the check so the order had to be returned with restock fees. Looking to recoup the costs of the restock fees. Would a lien help in this case?...Read More

My fiancé ended our engagement in Christmas Eve. We bought in his name only in 2017- I found the home and negotiated a price lower than asking 290. I also then arranged for a 203k loan and dealt with all the inspectors through the process. I designed the changes to the home, I researched and found the materials at cost prices due to my background in construction. I used a cousin for the contractor I have thousands of research and sweat hours into the home.I paid for tens of thousands of fees out of my pocket and gave him 20k to put in tve bank in order to get a personal loan to pay off his credit cards. It was always our intent to flip the house when the time was right. The house last appraised for 557k and my guess it is now more like 679k I’m still in shock of the broken engagement as he’s using issues well before he proposed. I know he’s in a depression and dealing with ptsd due to an ongoing custody battle. But I need to protect my interests. Do I have a right to file a mechanics lien for all the work that I did to increase the value of the home ...Read More

My fiancé bought the house that I found to flip. I did most of the design work- found materials- negotiated materials- did demolition- paint- and paid for some of the material that went into the house- we have been living there together since 2017- the pandemic caused our wedding to not happen and I’ve been going back and forth from Vt taking care of my parents. All of a sudden he wants to call off the engagement. The house has more than doubled in price - originally listed for 379 reduced to 350 and I negotiated 286- it’s not valued over 700k. He pays tge mortgage but I’ve paid most groceries and some of utilities along with paying for most of the furnishings ....Read More

I bought in cash an adjoining land of a construction project and gave easement to my client. if i hadnt they would not get the DES SEPTIC APPROVAL FOR build and CofO since their civil made a mistake. It was mutually agreed the client would pay taxes on that land and purchase outright from me. Neither has happened and ive paid all to date. they brought a new investor in and did not include my land cost allocation in funding needed. Approx $150k Can i file a mechanics lien? Its a verbal agreement that was discussed many times. They wont relinquish easement either. ...Read More

It was a painting job in which I was fired from because they somehow got into my Sherwin Williams account and found out how much I was actually paying for paint and thought I was ripping them off. There was also an issue of how much work I completed and I obviously couldn’t get all the after photos so the ones I do have, they sent in before pictures and claimed it was shoddy work. There’s a lot more to it. I sent in a motion to reconsider but was denied because it looked like I was trying to send in new exhibits when they were just copy’s of the documents I wanted the judge to look over again because I believe there were things he overlooked. Time is of the essence, I want to appeal it to the Supreme Court but I think I need a legal reason. ...Read More
