I have a lien filed but I got a notice from Levelset that we need to File Lawsuit to Enforce Lien or Cancel Lien. We haven't been paid for this project, so I need to File Lawsuit to enforce the lien. I need to hire an attorney asap to get this done. Job is located in Aurora, CO. Our corporate office is located in League City, TX. My reason for pointing this out is because our contract states that if legal action is to be taken, all court proceedings will be held in Galveston County, TX. So do I need to hire a TX attorney or a CO attorney to file this? Thank you in advance, ...Read More

I have a friend who owns a house and hired a contractor to do some work. The contractor did not finish the work and my friend is unwilling to fully pay him. So the contractor has put a lien on his property for the 2000.00 expected to pay. The attorney fees that the contractor has incurred is 450 and they are expecting my friend to pay the 2000 and 450. My friend does not want to pay for this because the job was left unfinished and not done well. My friend has no intention of selling the house soon. Is it true that after 2 years this lien will cease to be in effect and he does not have to worry about this lien or should he contact an attorney to fight this?...Read More

I am a home owner in Indiana. I have signed a contingency contract with roofing company. Roofing company never return signed contract back to me and they helped to process the claim with an insurance company. Insurance company not approved 100% estimate provided by roofing company. They have rejected contractors overhead and profit charges due to not complex project. Roofing company asked me to hire a public adjuster and i refused as it was not mentioned in the contingency contract. I told them to cancel the contract based on insurance not approving their O&P charges. Now roofing company is threatening to file a lien on my property as i am not moving forward them. They are asking $2000 for cancellation fee and few emails they sent to insurance company. They have not performed any work , not provided labor or material . Only they sent few emails to insurance company to get my overall claim approved. Please let me know if roofing can company sue me and what are my options. Thanks and appreciate your help....Read More

I'm a subcontractor, cabinet painting, that wasn't paid for a job and would like to get an idea of the process and timeframe I could expect. Considering the undisputed facts below, could I do this myself, could i do it with help of levelset or do I need a local attorney. This is the first time in 6 years of paitning that I didn't get paid and I have always followed the lien law timing requirements perfectly. In this case my work was on time and the quality perfect, the notice to owner was served on time and acknowledged and the claim of lien was filed on time. NOW LISTEN TO THIS. The owner never filed a notice of commencement and as it turns out the contractor was unlicensed and about 6 months back was served a stop work order from the DBPR. Consequently no building permits or inspections were done. The job should have had one for the remodel and the major plumbing; I learned all this when I went to the county to get information for my NTO. I told the owner all of this immediatly and gave him info from the county building department. So, the owner actually knew all this before making the final payment, so you can imagine how shocked I was when he made the final payment to the contractor and never asked for or received the final payment affidavid. Our best guess the contractor somehow bullied his way into getting paid by the owner and as you might expect left town the very next day and has not been seen since. Direction Please ...Read More

FloridaLien ForeclosurePreliminary Notice
I have a lien placed on a house which was listed for sale yesterday. I am considering contacting the Real Estate Agent to see if she can help getting the balance paid. Any downside to this? Is there any additional action(s) I should take in the meantime or should I just wait for the house to go under contract? I'm guessing they can't transfer title until the lien is released. The house has a mortgage, but to my knowledge there are no other lien holders....Read More
