Just moved into my new construction home this past spring and am experiencing foundational issues with the concrete and block work, they company that built my home is called Homes In Partnership and they are aware and say they are helping but have taken no actions to make any remedy to my home and the problem is only worsening over time. The exterior cracking in concrete was the first symptom but every day we find more cracking, and it is ripping into the drywall, cabinets, window and door frames, and the grout on the floor and bathrooms. The stem wall was broken at beginning of construction and builders were made aware; however, we believe nothing proper was ever done to fix the stem wall and that it is leading to the new home split apart at the seams....Read More

Hi I hired a contractor to perform a job on a driveway/sidewalk. We did not sign any contracts. At the beginning of a job I paid him half the money in cash (forgot to ask for a proof). Village required both pre-pour and final inspection. Final inspection failed because the sidewalk is above the house foundation and there is absolutely no pitch(slope) away from the house, so it crates a condition where water can get into the house instead of flowing freely away from the house. The contractor is extremely hard to talk to and not too much willing to fix the issue. He threatened however to put a lien against my house, which I think is ridiculous given the village failed the inspection. Can he even do that without us having any sort of contract? I keep sending him messages reminding the extent of the damage (it rained and water just puddles against a house). On a side note can I just hire a different contractor to fix the issue without worrying the one I hired will change his mind sometime in the future and will reach out to me to fix the issue? I don't want to pay another contractor only to find out I can shot myself in a foot and pay twice for same work. thanks !...Read More

I was hired on a public project to replace the metal roof under a contract from my company to the township of summit county ohio board members. It was a parts and service building next to a police station that we agreed on a certain amount. I also put about 2000 extra dollars into the project. Long story short they swindled me and ended up not paying anything on 7700 dollar invoice. this was completed in June of 2020 and shortly after during my attempts to get paid I came down with covid and it kind of mixed everything I had going up. Im not sure if I even have the right to still pursue and I was hoping I could get some insight on those rights ...Read More

The contract was signed, but are there other courses of action, such as filing a lawsuit against the property owner(such as unjust enrichment)? Also is there a responsibility on the part of the GC who is claiming not to have been paid. Do they have the responsibility to verify they have not been paid, and also to diligently attempt to pursue the payment through legal means? I checked in the jurisdiction and no court case or liens have been filed by the GC....Read More

We are filing a Small Claims lawsuit against a non paying customer here in CT. I wanted to get clarification on where the filing needs to occur. CT guidelines are: "If the plaintiff is a person and not a business and the case does not involve a landlord-tenant matter, the place where the hearing (trial) will take place (venue), if a hearing is necessary, will be a court in one of the following places: (1) where you live; (2) where the party you are suing (the defendant) lives or does business; or (3) where the thing or injury you are suing about took place. If the claim is a landlord-tenant matter, the trial will be in the court location where the house or apartment (premises) is located." Can we file in the jurisdiction where we live, or must we file where the defendant lives which is also where the project was completed? Thank you....Read More

We sold a load of Plywood to Selected Furniture LLC in Knox, Indiana (invoice date: 8-5-2021). They made some partial payments, but stopped after the last payment on 11/07/2022 ($1,000). The remaining balance is $9,372.39. Silvaris Corporation pursued collections through small claims court in Starke County for $6,000 (small claims limit when filing without legal representation). We received a summary judgment ($6,125 with court costs) which has been signed by the judge. Would a lien be an appropriate next step to pressure the debtor for payment or is there another avenue you would suggest? ...Read More

I lived with a woman who was the caregiver for an older man and remodeled the joke we shared for over two years at my own expense. After adding 400 Sq. Ft of new living space that added 40,000$ to the value of the property the woman got a quit claim deed and refinanced. When she did this she had the man evict me with a three day notice. When they evicted me I wasn't home and within two hours all of my belongings were stolen leaving me without not only My life's possessions but over 30,000$ in construction tools were gone. They won't pay for the 12,000$ in receipts I have and I haven't been able to take them to court for wrongful eviction because I'm staying with friends and totally broke. Can I file a mechanics lien and would it even do me any good?...Read More
