I'm being told a story and I can't understand how she thinks she can save the house. If I'm being told the truth, she claims she has 2 foreclosures. One is from her company they used their house as collateral. She says they called in loan. She also claims she is in foreclosure on her personal mortgage. From my understanding she owes 55 thousands on the mortgage and the business loan was a half a million. She is in forbearance. She says she's is getting it until March wich my understanding is it ends December all home covid programs end. We live in long Island NY. So how is this house savable and also it will be left to her only child . Won't her get the lien debt if the house is willed to him? Please help me know the truth as it affects my life in unimaginable ways. Thank you....Read More

I am a property owner and fired my GC and he in return filed a mechanics lien on my property. All the work that they had performed was paid in full, they stopped midway the project so the rest of the work scope was not done, therefore, not paid. He filed an initial lien for $130k, then amended the lien to $30k, and when I filed a complaint with the CSLB, he then filed a new lien of $130k. I want to sell this property asap but I am not sure of what I can do at this point to remove the lien. I have reached out to them in order to mediate and come to an agreement but they have not responded. I fired them in March, they filed the first lien right away, then amended it in July and placed in a new lien in August. What can I do in this case? ...Read More

I am looking to bond over a mechanic's lien on a residential single family property in New York. The New York lien law seems vague on the process. What documents have to be served to the lienor after the bond is filed with the county clerk? What is the time frame for service? Lien law doesn't seem to require the filing an affidavit of service after the lienor is served, is that correct? It seems the bond isn't "effective" until the lienor is served? How would a title company know that the lienor was served? ...Read More

I paid $48K for a Grand Manor roof to The Roofing Company. Roof looks good, however, head of employee brought trailer onto circular driveway and caused pavers to separate. Owner of company said he would send his own contractor to quote repairs. When he and I got quote back it was $26K. He called me and told me that it was "egregious" and would not pay it. He wanted to send others out for quotes and I refused and got my own. My quotes range from $35K to 3K. Fortunately, when his employee came for a final. check. I required that 3K be held back and that he delivers me a signed, notarized, contract adendum that 3K was held back as we could not agree to cost of repair. I was State Farm agent 42 yrs in Indianapolis and knew that roofers are not liable in some instances, however in this case he is due to fact that his employee failed to use 3/4 inch plywood or 1inch plastic sheets to protect pavers that were separated. I failed to have him release lien and now am faced with small claims court. I will first try with Better Business Bureau. Looking for any ideas you might have. Thanks, Jerry Ortner...Read More

I work in Monterey county and I provide a variety of services for homeowners, small and midsized contractors. They use my services on a as needed basis, simply because they cannot afford my services full time, their margins will not allow it. The presentation as I understand it, is directed at subcontractors. The talk was thorough and informative. The law and fillings are of the same ilk. For the businesses that I work with it seems that they cannot provide the capital or time to engage this legal process. My point is what does a legal process like this cost, how much time should a subcontractor expect for this action to conclude and the plaintiff to be paid? Is there a breakeven point calculation that would help them decide the value of the endeavor? thanks for your time and consideration. ...Read More

We are an equipment rental company. We initiated a lien on a real property where we provided rental equipment. However,currently the amount owed was more than the lien amount. We are currently within the 90 days as of the last day of the delivery of the services. However, the general contractor posted a bond couple weeks ago, which is also less than what was owed. Can we amend our lien to reflect the correct owed amount, even though there is a bond? The Florida statutes FS 713.08 and 713.24 seemed to be contradicting as to amendment of the lien amount. Is there any risk of not able collect any or portion of the amount owed in case of amendment to lien? Thank you for your help!...Read More
