I am a subcontractor in California. I sent a certified mail copy of Mechanics Lien to the GC and Owner, but have not yet filed with County Recorder. GC told me sending a Mechanics Lien Release will not affect my rights to file a Mechanics Lien at a later date (job is not complete yet), and wants to settle after job is complete in two weeks. Is this true? Will I have enough time to file a Mechanics Lien after job completion (especially with COVID-19 shut downs)?...Read More
I was hired by a Colorado GC to install as specified in the plans provided by the architect (this included which specific products to install). There is an issue with the manufacture of the products themselves, but they were installed properly. I am being told that I have punch list items to complete because the products are not working correctly. The products are defective, but install was correct. The GC should have already received 3 draws on this project, but is saying they have not received any payment. There is a pay when paid clause in the contract. The project is in CO.
Due to the corona virus, the site (it is a visual arts center owned by a university) is shut down so I couldn't do the punch list even if I wanted to.
What steps do I need to take to preserve my lien rights? How can I send an NOI when they aren't even open?...Read More
