I just received a lien against my property for services provided by my landscaping company - they built a patio for me in mid-September. I paid my landscaper in full when the work was performed. The claimant is the pavingstone provider. The landscaper is the “person indebted”. In addition, the date “contributions became due” was three months before the work was even performed at my house. Can I be held legally liable for this if my landscaper did not pay the pavingstone company, even though I paid in full? What is my recourse here? ...Read More

an unlicensed handyman that doesn’t even have a business license was hired to paint a home, and walked off the job before finishing. He is now demanding payment for the job or he is threatening to file a lien against the property. He is not licensed for business nor is he licensed specialty contractor. Can he still file a lien on an unfinished job? There was no written contract, just an email stating that he would get $1000 down payment with the remainder paid once completed....Read More

We have a client who has a number of small odd jobs on their home and really just wants an architect to review (maybe occasionally provide a drawing or sketch) and wants to hire us on an hourly basis. However, without defined scope, it is difficult to specify what construction documents or details will be provided and what we will be held responsible for. Any thoughts or suggestions?...Read More

Seller decided not to do repairs last minute and did escrow holdback. Buyer could not find contractor in time of closing and was instructed to give the name of someone they trusted instead in order to close on time. Buyer coordinated all bids, permitting, etc. and trusted person was supposed to cash the escrow check and write out personal checks to pay contractors. But this person (who originally agreed to do this) is now refusing to cash the check stating that they fear they could face tax liabilities (even though they will not be keeping any of the money) or possibly other legal consequences for doing so (such as acting as a general contractor without the credentials). Is it true this person would be taxed or face other legal consequences for doing this? Can Buyer go back to Title company and get check rewritten with contractor's name now that he has one? Amount $13k, WA State. ...Read More

I'm a homeowner whose kitchen remodel was going pretty well until a subcontractor messed up, our project manager approved incorrect cabinet installation, and our oven cannot be installed correctly. I've raised all the concerns with our contractor, but she has stopped responding to texts and emails. We have a standard contract that requires homeowner approval to complete the project, but we've already made our last payment. We have no leverage at this point except possibly legal....Read More

When a title company is processing a property sale that has a lien against it, will they contact the vendor to find out if late fees, interest, or other add-ons need to be paid off in addition to the initial amount? If further work is done and further liability by the owner is incurred, does an additional lien need to be filed or can the amount just be added when the lien is being paid off?
