Quick question. I just had an ADU built (conversion of a garage to a 2 bedroom living dwelling). I read California has a 1 year warranty period (as well as 4 year and 10 year for structure). Although this was not listed in my initial warranty, I wanted to make sure if there is a repair needed (on this new construction) within the first year, that it should be absolutely covered by the Contractor.
Thank you,...Read More

Government project overseas. All subcontractor and sub-subcontractor work performed in the USA. GC paid subcontractor for all of sub-subcontractor's work and finished materials. Subcontractor refuses to pay sub-subcontractor. Sub-subcontractor makes Miller Act claim notice. GC responds that no bond was issued or required -- asserts requirement waived under overseas project exception of 40 U.S.C. 3131(d).
What recourse does the sub-subcontractor have? Obviously, no lien could be obtained on government contract.
Can sub-subcontractor pursue claim against GC for failure to obtain bond, if the exception was not proper?...Read More

My company recently did some metal work for a new hotel that was being constructed. I placed a mechanics lien on the hotel back in May/June of this year to ensure that my company would be paid for our work, given that the owners were acting very erratic with the money.
I found out today that the hotel recently opened for business last Thursday (9/10). Should my lien have been satisfied first prior to the hotel opening for business?
