I am a house owner in Pennsylvania. I had hired a PA to help with an electrical unit replacement claim. The PA then called the restoration company to rip off the drywall and install moisture sucking machine to find the potential leak that caused the unit replacement. They were unsuccessful in finding the cause and then we got a local handyman to fix it for us for just $150. We were told that that the claim would pay for all the expenses but the work authorization contract we signed with the restoration company had a line that said I will be responsible to pay the company if the claim gets rejected. The PA also created an inflated bill for future repairs such as repainting the drywall and carpet replacement and sent it to our insurance company which eventually got denied. The restoration company wants us to pay the inflated bill of $8000 for one day's worth of work (ripping drywall (in ~100sqft area) and sent us a notice of lien. How do I deal with this? I do not want to get into any legal battles....Read More

I had a fire at my residence. The initial insurance estimate was 14000 dollars and I used their preferred contractor. He came in April,did the demolition and claimed I should have further remediation work done. He took months and did not complete the work even though he was paid 25000. In September I figured him but the insurance company paid me an additional 34000. I had to get other contractors to finish the deck,siding,flooring and electrical. Now he is claiming another 20000 dollars and filed a mechanics lien on my property. The only contact in signed was for the initial 14000. It cost almost 15000 too finish what he didn't. How do if get the lien removed?...Read More

Hello. I filed a mechanics lien on a duplex in PA. It was for building materials. The owner of the project has additional financing lined up to finish the first unit. The lien I filed was for both units. The building materials went into both units. Can I take the lien off of one of the units so the owner can get the loan finalized so I can get paid for the one unit? Or will it have to be both units? I filed the lien 1 year ago. Thanks for your time....Read More

4 months ago I hired a General Contractor to Demolition & remodel my small 2nd floor bathroom. He assured me the job would be complete in 3 weeks. It has been 4 months. And my bathroom isn’t halfway completed. The contractor built the subfloor and added ceiling/floor joists the 2nd week of the job. Fast forward 3 & 1/2 months later I am finally given the measurements to buy the tile for The wet area and the floor. The GC started the application of the tile without waterproofing the wet area where the field tile will be laid. He also used drywall in the ceiling of the wet area. As Opposed to cement board. I have been getting estimates from new General Contractors (while my current GC has disappeared yet again), the new GC is telling me that this work is not typical and that wet areas need to be waterproofed with a membrane that’s painted on prior to the tile belong laid. And he also stated that a new subfloor should not need self leveler. Ugh. Please help. My home is full of their tools. I need my master bathroom back. There is only a working commode in there. From the estimates I am receiving. It looks as though all of this GC work will need redone. I feel robbed. He has only been to my home 4 times and only worked 18 hours in total. What are my legal rights. I am concerned this GC has no formal structural training and has hacked up the foundation of my master bath/kitchen ceiling. 2 weeks ago. The last time the GC was at my ho e he poured floor leveler over half of the floor he built. It is finally dry & has cracked through the entire middle. I had other contractors look at the work and they said I need to have the floor redone that it wasn’t leveled properly. My tub is already installed and the new Joists are cut almost in half by the plumbers helper. The GC was not present for any of this. I paid him $4000,00 1/2 of the remodel Costs. ...Read More

I entered into a home renovation/improvement contract with P&S Services on March 15th, 2020. There have been delays due to COVID. We have agreed to pay the contractor the remaining amount per the contract (these funds are for work that has yet to be completed) and have only asked for an invoice for services rendered in return. The contractor is threatening to place a lien on my home if we do not pay the full amount on his specified date before the work is completed and refuses to provide an invoice. Please advise if PA law allows a contractor to place a lien on my property under these circumstances. Thank you. ...Read More

I have ordered a lien through your site to be filed in PA. I received an unsigned cover sheet that looks to be filing or commencing a lawsuit in Allegheny County. Does PA require a lawsuit to be filed simultaneously with a lien? What is the purpose of the cover sheet?...Read More

My company has been providing security services to a construction firm for over 5 months. We patrol the area and protect the site from being vandalized and from theft. The construction company has not paid me for our services. I have contacted them multiple times and every person I speak with gives me the run around. Can I place a lien on them? If not, what can I do to get them to pay me? I had to sign a waiver of Liens for another construction company that I provided services to before which makes me think I can place a lien on this current construction company....Read More
