I'm a customer and I've paid my general contractor according to our contract in full. However, the contractor claims there are overages or additional services he performed not covered by the original/change order and is trying to get more money from us. I terminated his services because he was not showing up at the job and not available whenever I try to reach him. He didn't finish the job in entirety and left many loose ends which cost me money to clean up so I can pass inspection. Can he file a mechanical lien against me even though I've paid him in full according to the contract but is now saying there were additional services/ overages not covered? He never communicated the additional services and cost as something outside of the contract until after we terminated him....Read More

My company designs and supplies equipment to contractors. The first thing we do after receiving an order is generate an engineering submittal, which can take up to 6 weeks of labor. Then the customer approves it, or asks for corrections before approving it. This approval is our first billing milestone. So when setting a "Date Labor or Materials Last Delivered" in zlien, do I use the date on which we begin expending labor? Or do I use the date that submittals are approved, which is the date where the customer believes they've actually had something 'delivered' to them? Note that our company does business all over the US (and internationally)....Read More

How can I protect my receivable in this situation?...Read More

I'm still working on the project, and at the end of this month I propose to submit January and February invoices together, and I'd like to cut off access to the document management system where the work is stored, until the bills are paid. Can I do this?...Read More

We installed an elevator for the property and have not been paid the remaining 50% balance. Homeowner paid the general contractor, but GC did not pay us. Homeowner thinks they should not pay twice, but that should be between them and their GC. We should be allowed to file the lien until paid....Read More

I just followed the instructions on the webiste. The letter from the attorney reads: The lien was improperly filed against the Landlord's real property. Pursuant to NJSA 2A:44a-3, if a tenant contracts for improvements on the premises then the lien can only attach to the leasehold interest of the tenant unless once of the exceptions is satisfied. I can send a copy of the letter if you'd like....Read More
