I do portable sawmilling for people around the state. People cut trees at their house and I bring a portable sawmill and mill their trees into Lumber. I get paid at the end of the job. I recently did a job for a guy cut all the lumber he was to pay me at the end of the job about $1500. At the end of the job he told me he was broke and couldn’t pay me. I was told I could put a lien on his property or the wood I cut?? Just wondering what my options are?...Read More

Hello my name is Jim Brown and I'm a sole proprietor for J&D floor covering in RI. I was asked by a Massachusetts construction company to install flooring at a jobsite in NH. I was coaxed basically from 1 dollar a sf up to 2 dollars a sf which I finally said yes. Starting on October 8th I started installing and finished 8 days later. I then sent an invoice for 4284.00. This was a second invoice the first one I was asked to lower because it had additional monies in it because of extra work like floor prep. It would have been 1000 higher which I finally agreed too. I finally received a check for 2658. I asked why not full payment and was told its policy to withhold till final inspection. I waited until 90 days passed asked when I can expect to receive balance and was told today. They kept 486 for workman's comp insurance and 1140 to repair some door jambs in a unit. For one thing I've worked for this group in the past and never had to pay for this insurance and I was never given the chance to go and repair any issue with the floor, The amount they are charging for a small repair is extravagant. I want to know if I can file a lien for the remainder? Thanks Jim...Read More

A homebuilder laid black dirt across my property and cut down a couple of trees. He the terminated the contract and deducted money I had paid to pay for this so called foundation pad and clearing of land. He denies all wrongdoing. What's my next step?

hi, we gave our contractor 50% of our house project's total cost. We just found out that although his crew has been working on the house with the materials that have been delivered, he never ordered the remaining materials to complete the job and also owes the lumber yard for the windows and siding that were delivered. We want to cut ties with the contractor as soon as possible. What is the safest document for us to use so he cant come back and say we owe him more? We will settle up with the lumber yard directly and they will give us a balance paid receipt. Thank you ...Read More

My boyfriend has been living with me for over 3 years. We got in fight and he threatened me with contractors/mechanics lien. He has done a lot of work in house, outbuildings and property. However has done so with on site materials and donated material. Walls, electric, etc.. are not up to code. He has also ran 2 trucks and 1 car. Into the ground. I haven't paid him money..but have provided room, meals and cigarettes to him for 3 years. Just wondering if it is even a possibility that he could do this?...Read More

I had a contract for a bid job with a customer. After receiving several progress payments and completing most of the work, he abruptly texted me and said don’t come back to the job site, send me a check for my last payment. He is now claiming he is unhappy with the quality of work and the timeline of completion as well as claiming I no showed to his job. There were no completion dates in the contract and I was on site everyday I was scheduled to be. 48 hours before receiving the text to stop coming, he had been talking about next steps and a future project to complete. He did not give me an opportunity to review what he claimed he was unhappy with or fix it. Is he in breach of contract and do I owe him any money at all? There is still money owed in the contract, however the job is not complete. ...Read More

If the GC was the one paying our company for our work and we were hired as a subcontractor do we still file a lien against the property that we preformed work? We were only paid for half and no further attempt to pay the debt has been made. I would assume yes because essentially the owner pays the GC and the GC pays us but I wanted to confirm before I filed. our plumbing and heating business is based out of NH ...Read More

We are a small LLC company that manufactures steel buildings. We have written contracts for our buildings sales. We manufactured and installed a 30’x44’ building in Derry NH for a customer and it has been completed for a around 3 months now. The customer does not want to pay the balance on the building to us. The building was completed and signed off on the invoice by the customer and the building also passed inspection. The customer just refuses to pay the balance. We need to get our balance in full. How do we proceed with a lien on his home? Thank you ...Read More
