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 got a call from a layer stating that it's against the law to file a lien on a residential property if a homeowner has paid the GC. We were hired as subcontractors from the GC, but the GC has not paid us and refuses to pay us. So we went ahead and placed a lien on the unpaid work we did (residential home). Am I breaking the law?...Read More
I contacted a contractor that had done previous work for me about another job. We talked over the phone about the project. His employees came and completed the work in one day. The work was horrible. He then presented me with a bill for $2700, more than double what we had discussed on the phone. I would not pay the amount he gave the invoice for, but agreed to pay $1200, the amount he discussed, less the $200 for the repairs that had to be made to the shotty work. He insisted that i pay the invoice and is now threatening to put a lien on my house. What can I do?...Read More

We performed work in Pennsylvania (Philadelphia to be precise) and we have approximately $20k oustanding for some professional engineering design and construction administration services.
The work was performed throughout 2018 and 2019.
Would filing a lien against the property help us in collecting the outstanding receivables? What are the requirements of timing to file the proper lien.
Thank you...Read More
Th oewner of the property is an LLC, they hired us to provide siding works. In the end they didn't pay in full. We wanted to file a mechanics lien against the LLC.
Please, correct me if I'm worng. We have 6 months for that and first we need to send a notice of intent, than we need to serve an affidavit of notice within 20 days, and than we can file a lien within the same period. What would be a propriate affidavit of service of notice - registered mail or service by Sheriff?
We received an intent to lien (ref #1742334) after we notified the contractor that we were going to have to hire another contractor to fix all of the issues with the job that his crew did. In response, we filed a complaint through our Attorney General's office (& were told it could take some time for it to get assigned to an agent for it to be mediated). Today I added a comment to the intent to lien zlien site to let the contractor know that the complaint was filed. As far as I know he has not yet received a copy of that complaint. He has gotten pictures of many of the issues via text from when I first saw them; his solution was to come back a third time and apply a third coat of stain; I didn't trust that was going to work, and talked to 3 other contractors, all of whom said his solution not only would not fix the floors, it would make them worse, and that the issues that he left us with are going to require redoing the entire job.
That's why we told him we would need our $$ back, and why we believe he had no right to file this intent to lien.
We want to make sure we do whatever we can to prevent him from actually putting a lien on the house. I don't know if that means we need to hire a lawyer in addition to waiting for the AG complaint to be settled? Also, I know the intent references "10 days", but I don't see an actual date for when those 10 days are up. Can you please confirm just so we're clear on the timeline we're dealing with.
Thank you for your help,
