I own a lawn service and installed an irrigation system in customer's yard. She refused to enter her credit card information on our secure website so we made an exception and let her pay a 50% deposit of $1397.50. The work has been completed and is working perfectly. Customer refused to pay the remaining balance of $1397.50.
What are my options?
Thank you in advance for your time....Read More

We had a project manager assigned by our General Contractor, to help build our 2nd home in another state. At the very end of our project, he was "helping" us get an asphalt driveway quote as it was not in the contract with our GC. We asked the project manager via email, and text, over and over, at least 30 times to see the scope of work in writing and get it approved by us, BEFORE work began. The asphalt people started work anyway. We got them stopped after we found out they had begun without authorization, however, they now claim we owe $8k in materials and work. The asphalt guy is saying he will lien our property. Is he able to do that with no contract from us?...Read More
What is the likely outcome of going to court and getting the cost of a new roof/anything needing to be replaced from the original contractor that built a faulty roof and quit in the middle of the project? I would also like to have the attorney fees paid by him since he is the reason we need an attorney. He left us with a remaining balance of $6,000-$9500 and says that would be enough to get electricity wired/lighting installed, replace the wood/roof/shingles, replace gutters, and stain the entire structure. We gave him $19,000 so far, and he agreed to replace the roof before he quit. I feel it is fair for him to pay our attorney fees, refund us the roofing cost, and give us the amount that exceeds the remaining balance after having to hire a new contract. How likely would be get our requests? ...Read More
I'm a subcontractor in East Tennessee and I worked for a non-licensed general contracting company. I have a signed contract, I'm to be paid on Thursday after the job is complete. However, it's been nearly 30 days since payment was due. Despite repeated phone calls and emails the general contractor is playing games and refusing to pay me. I went down to the local courthouse and they said all I need to do is print off a mechanics lien form, fill it out, a sworn affidavit and notarized it. However, the only forms I found online are against the homeowner. The homeowner of this job is 80 years old and I don't think it's fair to put pressure on them they didn't do anything wrong. On top of everything, I have a broken hand. Despite this, I'm still trying to work and make a living and not sit at home on unemployment. I don't have the money and I just want to find the right form. Can someone please, out of the kindness of their heart help me!?
Thank you and God bless!...Read More
