Preliminary Notice
Texas
I worked on a project for 8 months, it was the in-laws home that needed some repairs in order to be put on the market to sale after their passing. I worked with my soon to be ex-husband on the project. It was a verbal agreement that if i helped him getting this house ready To be sold- when it did sell- he would give me $10,000. The house sold Nov.1,2022. I have not heard a peep from him in regards to me being paid. A few months back he made a statement that he was giving me anything, that i owed him for other things that he started to rattle off. These things he stated had nothing to do with this house and besides....i dont feel that i owe him anything to be honest. With that being said- this verbal was for the job not by monthly payments as the examples show. What do i nees to do here to get my money? He also had me charge stuff on my home depot account with assurance of being paid. 1300.00 be be exact. Not one penny haw been applied to that....Read More

We are a supplier on a commercial project in TX. We created a custom ceiling for the developer/owner. Typically we ship FOB factory, with title passing at time of shipment. Occasionally, when customers are not ready to receive the goods, they will have us store them temporarily. In this case, the customer asked us to store the completed goods. We consider that title passed when we put the goods into storage, so we issued the invoice. Does TX agree with that? Can we send the preliminary notice though we still have physical possession of the specially-made goods?...Read More

We are a concrete pumping company that finished a large commercial job in May and have not been paid. This was a job that was ongoing since 2/2022 at the same address. I only became aware of preliminary notices being a requirement and unfortunately only one invoice out of seven falls in the legal timeframe. My partners would like me to file a lien anyway. I am wondering if it is worth sending this one prelim out with the amount of the May invoice listed and also list the total of what is due and proceed to file a Mechanics Lien. An Intent to Lien has been sent along with monthly statements. ...Read More

I'm a contractor that did work on a home. We finished the work on the job 10 months ago but there is still an outstanding balance and haven't gotten paid. My customer isn't doing anything to pay, all she says is that she will and doesn't pay it off. What should I do because we never sent a Preliminary Notice out to the customer nor have we sent out monthly notices. Can we file a claim of Lien? ...Read More

I started working for my friends remodeling company, "TOTAL TOOL BOX". We worked well together and we're building the business. I took 45% of all contracts while he took 55%. Well on our last job he took all the money and didn't pay me. I did over 90% of all the work that had been done. The home owner sent the first instalment on the contract and I was told by the person I worked with that he never sent it. Then all of a sudden he drags all his tools up and disappears. Won't answer anyone's number. I want to put a labor lean on the property. What should I do...Read More

The work is complete and quality is not disputed. He has since sold the house and we don't know his whereabouts. Do we continue to send notices to his former address?...Read More

TexasPreliminary Notice
Our company is a sub to a prime contractor and we have provided and paid skilled laborers weekly on pipeline construction and maintenance jobs. Payment is due on or before 45 days from and we have not been paid for nearly 90 days and need to protect our lien rights. What do we do and should we consult with an attorney to make sure we do it correctly, as we are owed $243,500 and will not do any further business with the Prime. Since the Prime is working for major pipeline companies and his contracts may be cancelled for sub lien filings we feel we can get paid quickly with the threat of their clients seeing a notice of intent to lien. I can be reached at 713 824 9393 or email Tim@Linealind. com...Read More
