I’m doing some work in a co-op apt. The client didn’t put her items in storage as agreed upon, forcing us to work around them. I sanded 3floors already and stained the bedroom floor. This job was supposed to take 3 weeks but took almost 3 months due to moving her items around and her constantly changing her mind on items already approved on. She went to another company and got an estimate of $6000 to complete when I informed her the changes she keeps making after approval bought the final payment to$44000. That’s when she claimed she lost her keys and needed my copy. After receiving them she asked me to remove my tools and self from her property and isn’t making any payments. As per my insurance I’m not allowed to work on her plumbing or electrical and got the appropriate company to sub the job to. She refuses to pay them also. How can I get pass this?...Read More

New YorkNotice of Intent to Lien
I wired a small window installation for a contractor at a school. I refused the contract and asked to be excused from the project, the contractor said to do the job without a contract. The ladder slipped out from under me due to the contractors neglect, and fractured my wrist. After completion the contractor refuses to pay unless I sign a release excusing him from "all" liability. Can I put a claim on the construction bond? rpiterniak@yahoo.com...Read More

If I received a mechanics lien on my property in Nassau County, NY and the lien spells my last name wrong, lists an inaccurate agreed price for services and wrong date for last date of services furnished can I get the lien vacated under Section 9 for facial defects? If I send a demand letter under Section 38 for Itemized Documentation does that lessen my case for facial defect and make the lien valid?...Read More

I have a contract signed for129,760.00 I've received 2 of the scheduled 5 payments. The wrote me a termination letter and said my work thus far is satisfactory. My deadline was April 14. I believe they got a better price to finish the job. When I got this job last year they couldn't get anyone else. I could have had many other jobs but I dont overbook. Now I have no other work. I believe they are in breach of contract. Please advise....Read More

I am the owner of a property in New York state. Four years ago 2 people put mechanic's liens on a property I own. The liens are not detailed in breakdown of costs. Just some numbers scrambled down and a total. The numbers don't even add up to the total. Thousands of dollars off. The liens are fraudulent as I never hired these people to do work on the house and they filed the liens for spite. They also never served the liens on me. There is no affidavit of service with the county clerk for these liens. How would this affect my ability to refinance the property....Read More

Im a contractor who has not been paid; original lien amount for work completed not paid. Issued a work-stoppage letter from client lessee of NY space; have additional amounts of work not paid pre-stoppage letter and post-stoppage letter (demobilization, storage). Want to amend lien for entire amount, but concerned will lose priority of filing. Do I file a new lien with just the increased amount in order to preserve filing date of priority for original lien? Can I amend the original lien to increase the amount so as not to lose the filing date? Can interest be added to the amounts unpaid as part of lien amount? Thank you...Read More
