What recourse do I have? Furious in Florida...Read More

An owner rightfully withheld a general contractor's retainage to address several liens on the property the general contractor failed to address (due to its failure to pay subs) on a project. The general contractor is insolvent and will likely file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy? Setting aside all of the bankruptcy issues, how should the payment of sales tax be addressed to the soon to be secured subcontractor be addressed? The retainage does not include sales tax because it has already been drawn by the contractor. If the owner pays the subcontractor's sales tax, it pays twice; and if it withholds the sales tax and requires the sub to pay it, the state potentially recovers sales tax twice....Read More

I filed a mechanics lien against a property where we completed work and were never compensated for. Recently, we found out that the owner foreclosed on the home. The lender has now put it up for sale and is under contract. We contacted the lender to inquire if title company is aware of the lien on the property and he notified us that his foreclosure wipes out our lien. I proceeded to check with the county clerk and out lien is still recorded but he insists that they can in fact sell the house with clear title because the foreclosure wipes out our lien. Is this correct?...Read More

Well, I went thru an adversary proceedings over a tuition debt. The proceedings took over two years to get a ruling, in which the judge ruled in my favor. Now when I filed for bankruptcy it was only in my name not my husbands, but the case proved that I was the primary care giver for our kids. I discovered that a lien was placed on the property only in his name after I tried to refinance the loan to include money for needed repairs to the property....Read More

Why is Libbey Glass able to pay out this money if 503c says it is illegal without meeting certain criteria? I guarantee there were not job offers for all of the executives at Libbey Glass. Plus I thought 503c is supposed to include 1yr prior to filing bankruptcy. They are completely screwing all of their contractors and taking everything away from our contract that we just fought so hard for that they negotiated in "good faith" and immediately after paid out these bonuses and presented a publicly admitted "prepackaged bankruptcy". What would possibly give the judge in Delaware legal grounds to honor this? Please help I don't understand....Read More

We are a millwork sub in Texas who still have approximatly 8k due on a job that is completed. Third month notices will be due on 9/15. We received communications from a firm that says that the GC is filing bankruptcy and that 17 of our fellow subs are hiring them to collect their money. If this is true and the GC files bankruptcy, does that change the owner's obligation to pay off any lien we file? The firm says the owner will just 'bond off' the lien and we won't get paid....Read More
