We hired a gentleman to clean up our basement after the septic backed up.
We asked about how much he said less than $800.
During this time he asking could he stay at the house during the winter. Its empty were fixing it up. He said he would stay there and we pay him $1000 a week plus free place to stay. We informed him we cant afford that well after that he was rude and we received a bill for twice as much when we asked why he sent another bill charging us $225 more for a lien we just received the bill 3 days before. Can he do this and on top of all this he didnt complete the job left it worse were going to have to hire someone else. Is it an empty threat. Seems like he shouldnt be allowed to do this.

We decided to lien an ongoing job because it appeared to be ending in the near future. Shortly after we filed the lien, it appears the job will go longer. The invoices on the lien were paid, but there are now several more invoices that are going unpaid. Are we able to add the more recent invoices to the lien or file a second lien? Or once we file a lien, are we blocked from filing a second lien?...Read More

I am in the process of selling my home. An ex employer from 6 yrs ago just popped up claiming that
I owe him money and is going to put a lien on my property. What should I do? I do not owe him anything. I am aware of the money he is speaking of but we had an agreement that it was all taken care of prior to me leaving the company.
We did have the agreement in writing. I'm trying to track it down, but being 6yrs ago i don't know if i'm going to be able to find it.....
He has only sent me 2 texts messages with the threat of a lien. I haven't responded to him yet.

I ordered a lien through Levelset and was very pleased that the lien was filed within the 90 day deadline of the last day of materials or labor on site. What I failed to do in the process was to provide Notice of Intent to Enforce 20 days before filing enforcement action.
We were successful in recording the lien with the county and received payment and subsequent lien release was filed and recorded.
Now the client is threatening legal action due for 100% of the lien amount and legal fees due to violation of the statute.
Please provide advice.
Thank you!...Read More

I see in your online material that you have indicated that Equipment Supply co's only have mechanics lien rights if in direct contact with the property owner. Which section of the North Dakota Code is this for reference? Also, does this same principle apply in the case of an oil and gas lien? If so, is there a different Code provision for that?
