We filed a mechanics lein in Utah through Levelset. We were told it is not valid because we did not file a pre-lein first before beginning construction. Is that true? There is still work that we are under contract to complete on the house. Can we release the existing lein, file a pre lein and then file the lein again since construction is not yet complete?
Also, what is the time frame after filling a lein that you need to send a notice of foreclosure?...Read More
We are developing an RV park from the ground up and are a little overwhelmed with all of the people we have to rely on from landscapers to builders of the park. Could Seth Millstein call me to discuss our contract needs?
I had a fence built last summer and it fell apart in 6 months. I asked the contractor to come back and fix his shoddy work. 3 months later he has now finally repaired it and asking for more money and threatened a lien if I don’t pay. There was no discussion of money before he did it. Can he put a lien on my house?...Read More

As your office has assisted in filing the notice of lien on the above matter, we have some questions on the process as we are presently involved in litigation with the other party CDC. As such, we would like to discuss this matter with one of your attorneys if at all possible. Time is of the essence and if possible if you could provide a time for a call with an attorney tomorrow morning it would be appreciated. Regards, Brandy...Read More
Our home recently received a CofO and our contractor said we are approved and ready to close to convert a building loan to a mortgage. However, we have learned that we will be significantly over our loan for two reasons. On at least three separate occasions, the contractor added amounts to draw requests we had approved before he submitted them to the bank for payment. We had not approved the increased amounts but it does appear they were made to legitimate vendors. Secondly, his son who was our realtor on a previous home sale now says he is owed $10K on the build of our new home. We have no signed agreement to that effect. We feel like we are over a barrel on this one, we need and want to move in. But these are serious issues! What would you suggest?...Read More

What happens if you go over the joint check agreement amount and sign a final waiver from the gc on the joint check amount. If you file the lien is it still valid for the reminding monies on that job or since you have passed the joint check amount is it not valid. Call me if you have any questions.
