We hired a general contractor for a siding job. He is not listed through the BBB. In the original contract it only stipulates the removal and replacement of the siding, fascia, soffit, gutters and garage door frame. There is nothing listed about change orders. Now he is coming to us with these changes that he completed and is expecting payment. All he gave us was an invoice and never discussed cost or how he would handle a change if it came up. What do we do?...Read More

I have worked along side of my brother providing quality construction and remodeling services. We have recently came across a project where we used our concrete guys and was able to pay $9,000.00 for their work and labor... Our company still owes $6,000.00 to our concrete guys, but the home owner refuses to pay me the remaining $14,000.00 How do I get paid which will resolve all this moving forward?...Read More

We are a general contractor in Ohio. We generally complete projects through a mix of using subcontractors and self-performing work. We recently completed a project for a public entity (a township) that did not file a notice of commencement. They are refusing to pay. Can we file a mechanics' lien?...Read More

1st day of labor or materials. Can you confirm if this is the first day of labor onsite? We do design work that starts way before we are onsite. Just want to confirm which labor date I should be using. Same for material. We typically have the material shipped to our office and then taken to the site. Just want to confirm which date I should be using. Same for last day of labor/material. Should this be our final day of onsite labor?...Read More

Probably not a question you can answer, but we had a contractor take material from a job site, and use it on another job, that he was not authorized to use it on. Then he started buying product for the new job, and we would like to file a notice of furnishings on it. We are well within the 21 days to file the notice on the product that was properly purchased and shipped to the new job, but past the 21 day on the product he used that he was not authorized to ship to the new job (he bought it under the old job's P.O. and had it shipped to the old job). We would like to cover that very expensive product that is beyond 21 days.... Should I file a notice going back beyond 21 day to the point when we have now discovered the product was moved from one job to the other, or should I file it within the 21 days, and include the unauthorized product? This guy is a dirt bag, and not trustworthy....Read More

I am an ongoing subcontractor in Ohio. Our client has been paying us for over a year. They have now started to default on payments. We have not field a Notice of commencement as the type of work we provide is billed by the time and not the project. Some of the work was in assistance with their production as a refinery and some was in building up their facility (real property). They have acknowledged the they owe the moneys due. They were working toward getting us paid in full but they now appear to be getting strained for new investors. I'd like to make sure that a mechanic's lien is the best approach. ...Read More

A frivolous mechanics lien was filed on my home by a pool contractor over 6 years ago. Ohio mechanics lines expire after 6 years but my question is whether I need to file anything to have the lien formally removed?...Read More

Performed 3 weeks of labor sanding the wood floors in a home. When time came to stain and finish the floor, the customer became too difficult to work with (couldn't pick a color, didn't want to use the products we normally used, wanted me to use their products against manufacturer specifications, and then walked all over our prepped floor with dirty shoes setting us back another couple days)so in frustration I told him to just find someone else to do the stain/finish since he didn't want it done the way we do it and he could just pay us for the sanding. Now he's refusing to pay anything at all....Read More

If I am a 2nd tier Sub-Contractor in Ohio and have requested a NOC multiple times without receiving one, should I be worried about completing my work or filing a lien, (should the project come to that)? Is not receiving the NOC actually in my favor? Also, how concerned should I be with Vendors and Subs under my Subs; are they allowed to file a lien if not timely paid?...Read More

We have Retail branches that would like to exchange notices with customers on-site when they don't pay COD. In OH, it looks like that can be done as long as a written receipt is obtained, but what other states allow this?...Read More

Determining when to send NOF in Ohio so as not to make it invalid. We have labor in on a project but it's for engineering/CAD time, not labor onsite. If I sent NOF now with only that type of labor, would it be invalid? Does it have to labor on jobsite?...Read More
