We are a Water restoration company and did work at an apartment complex. The tenant staying in the unit called us to perform work and the property management company was not made aware of us doing the work until we gave the bill to the customer. Both him and the property management company do not want to pay the bill and keep saying its the other persons responsibility. It has been a month now of going back and fourth so I am wanting to file a lien but not sure if I file one lien for both parties or make two separate liens for both. What do you think is the best way to go about this situation? ...Read More

I inherited my mother's manufactured home when she died. She never paid any of the property taxes since she was barely able to afford any food after the monthly rent on the park parcel took about 80% of her social security check, so property tax was like out of the question, and now, I am living in the house, have invested a great deal into it's upkeep , upgrade, and have my whole life in this house. and keep getting notices from the county that over 9K is due for property tax and the interest that has built up. The house is paid for but the rent here for the land it sits on is so much and it has doubled In the years since she passed away. What I want to know is can my house be seized by the government and is this likely? What other options do I have? I've been afraid to ask them directly at the tax collector office because I don't want to draw attention to it. Is it better to pay a little bit of it or just keep quiet? I don't want to open Pandora's Box by paying just a little of the huge debt. Any advice welcome. ...Read More

We hired a contractor to paint our pool. He didnt showup and did very little work. We never signed a contract and he kept giving us invoices charging us more. He just gave us a notice of right to lien. This all started March 23 and we fired him a week ago on Wednesday. He had written on the invoices that he would have the pool completed by the 14th of April. He just started draining the pool on the 20th of April then left for a week. We are not sure what to do. He wants $750.00 for the work he has done. He was here for about 6 hrs total and did very little work in the 6 hrs. On his invoices it breaks done what he charges for each work he performs so I was going off his invoice to how much we owe him. Which is about $500.00 to $600.00....Read More

HOMEOWNER QUESTION: I've paid my contractor 90% of the job cost. There are still problems with the cabinets (18% of cost) - finish flaws, door misalignments, and promise to replace new dented microwave. There is a 3' x 5' area where new hardwood flooring was torn out due to carpenters' scratch. The flooring was removed before a new box was opened to reveal a MUCH darker existing wood. Lighter wood has not been located. My contractor is giving me a deadline to pay the balance which is to be paid "upon substantial completion". I don't consider the job substantially complete. ...Read More
