I subcontracted to an HCR Mail Carrier to cover her delivery route via verbal agreement for $100 per day. I have since found out that the average rate is $250 per day. But that is really irrelevant. She has since refused to pay the full amount she owes me saying that her total rate is $100 per day and that she did not say that is what she would pay me specifically. So because they had to bring in other mail carriers to train me because of her sudden accident prevented her from doing so; I would have to split that $100 per day with the people that trained me. That it is not her responsibility to pay them above and beyond the $100 per day that she agreed to pay me. Now this is not an exact number, but I believe she still owes me a minimum of $500 and she is refusing to pay me. What do I do? ...Read More

How can an owner protect themselves from liens being placed on their property in Wyoming, when they have paid the General Contractor for the work, but the General Contractor has not paid subcontractors and suppliers? We were recently threatened with liens because the General Contractor took the money we paid for the work/supplies, but the General Contractor did not use the money we paid to pay for the services/supplies. As a result, we had to pay the cost twice in order to ensure our property was not encumbered. Is there any mechanism that can be used to ensure that only the GC can be subject to a lien once the owner has paid them for the work/supplies?...Read More

We are the architect on a private project. We are already nearing the construction phase and wondered if it was too late to file a notice of lien. We don't need to file an intent to lien at this time....Read More

We are a GC in CA. We were finishing up a job in WY earlier this year and were not allowed to finish. I subsequently filed a prelim and notice of intent to lien. Two issues: 1) I apparently filed it with the wrong owner. Can I refile it? 2) Client is stating that there is some statute that says we have to prelim before we are paid anything on the job. Is this true? From the client... "Wyoming statutes require that a contractor provide a statutory form of notice on a project, "prior to receiving any payment" and that failure to send it "shall bar the right of contractor . . . to assert a lien."...Read More

Hello. My company is a supplier out of Montana and we are supplying cabinets into Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. I am curious, on this government bonded project over $150,000, if the prime contractor subs out a part of their project to a subcontractor to provide materials/labor, do we send out a preliminary notice to the prime contractor within 60 days of the subs first purchase? This sub contractor is a new account and just started purchasing items for this project so does that still meet the 60 day requirement even if the prime contractor has been purchasing for about a year? Also we did not realize the prime contractor was going to be purchasing a large amount of material from us and missed the 60 day filing date, plus I wasn't aware Wyoming law requires the prime contractor to receive a preliminary notice for their purchases. In MT, we only send the Notice of Right of Action on Security when a sub makes purchases on a government bonded project and the document is sent to the general (prime) contractor. Is there any other recourse for us against the bond if there are problems collecting from the general? Or when it says 60 days does this mean the last 60 days worth of invoices are covered by the notice and then any new purchases or is it truly first purchase by the prime contractor starts the 60 day clock? Also how about a future situation of a prime contractor doing a job for under $150,000, do we automatically have rights against the bond or have to file a preliminary notice in that case? Thanks for any information you can give me....Read More

A contractor, Pete Weisbeck, built a house for me. He insisted on vinyl siding. I chose a siding with an excellent rating, (thicker, good reviews) from Menards. The home was built in a rural setting, 3 miles from town on 6.9 acres. The contractor began putting on the siding on the North side approx. July 1, 2020, continuing around the house, ending approx. July 31, 2020, on the West side. As he was putting the West side pieces on, the siding began buckling on the lap ends. The buckling has gotten worse, and has involved the South side as well. In August, I asked Pete about the siding because he had not said anything to me about the buckling. He noted that he had not done anything wrong. He wanted to wait until winter to see if it would straighten up. He completed the house sometime in mid September 2020. I have a contract with a payment schedule which was paid religiously except for the last draw which I withheld because the siding is unacceptable. HIs cost to build the house was $163,977.00 and the last draw is $7911.98. I read the Warranty which had a time limit and contacted the siding Warranty Company in Vermont and mailed all documents and samples of the siding. They are "unable to make a disposition on my claim" and are sending an Inspector. The Inspector cannot come until the week of March 8, 2021. In the meantime, Pete sent me, by e-mail, an Intent to file Lien per Levelset on January 25, 2021. He has given me 20 days to pay the last draw or he will file the lien at the court house. He has not offered to help me resolve the siding issue, says he did nothing wrong, and wants his money. He is not willing to wait for the Inspector's review and decision....Read More
