Hello, I have a question about notice timing and what lien rights are when there are long (up to a year) lead times of when we get an order and when we actually provide materials. I'm confused as to deadlines of notice timing, etc. Thank you, Paula...Read More

FloridaLien DeadlinesNotice of Intent to Lien
I am a real estate staging professional. I help people get their homes ready for sale doing anything from painting, repairing things, project and contractor management, sourcing materials, and on and on. I do whatever it takes to get a home ready for photographs and onto the market. I recently got a home ready doing all of the above and more. It happens to be my sons home. I dont want to drag this story out, but his ex-fiance left him with this fixer upper - he was to use my professional services and do whatever it took to get it to market...we accomplished the goal and completed it this past May 15th (its is sold now and due to close in 2 weeks). She has been contacted over and over and over again about paying her half of the bill which is over 8K. She keeps dragging this out and my son agrees that if i have to, i should file a lien against the house because she will not agree to how she will pay me her half. They are both on mortgage and should only probably break even at the sale...My sons lawyer says any monies should go into another escrow acct and be divvied after the closing...i feel that while she still has a stake in the house is my only leverage at this point..I want to sent a NOI this week (even tho it will be a few days after supposed deadline for IL) and then i want to lien the house...we never wanted it to get this far gone...she was so cooperative until recently. What can I do? should I proceed with NOI or not? Does her obligation stop once the house is sold? It is crunch time now and I am so stressed about this...I have been doing this for years and never ever had trouble getting paid......Read More

Hi, I want to know the process I must take. Our company was subcontracted to do work. The contractor signed a proposal that agrees to deliver full payment upon completion. It has been 3 months and we still have not received payment. every time we ask he gives an excuse saying he didn't get paid yet. Which is none of our concern because that wasn't in the contract. What is the step I must take to go about getting payment? We are in the State of Florida, and we did not do a Notice to owner before we started the work....Read More

I was an investor on a rehab project. The Owner on Title to the property to be rehabbed was also the Contractor. He never completed the job 4 years ago and was incarcerated shortly after only starting the rehab project(he has been in jail since). I was in litigation for 3 years on a Quiet Title Action on the property in order to gain Title. That case fell apart and was dismissed due to Lawyer Malpractice. I sued in Small Claims for a Judgement in order to obtain a Lien. I recently lost. I am trying to exhaust all possibilities in order to have a Lien placed on this property. ...Read More

This is regarding a Lien that was filed on 7/12/22 and Levelset said it was to expire on 10/07/22, but had requested a lien extension on 9/27/22. We received an email from Levelset on 10/02/22 stating they were missing some info but that they were going to send it out anyway. As of today, it has not been sent, we called in to check on the status and it seems they were still waiting on us to respond and it is now scheduled to go out tomorrow. We were unaware of this delay and now it is passed the lien expiration date, so will this lien extension even be valid? Are we still protected with this lien?...Read More

I didn't file a preliminary notice on time - but the owner didn't say anything about it. Can I file a lien later, if I need to? Isn't it the owners obligation to raise the issue?...Read More

CaliforniaLien DeadlinesMechanics LienPreliminary Notice
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
