A mechanic's lien was filed 9/15/2020 in the state of California. I did not know that I needed to have an attorney enforce the lien with 90 days of filing. What can we do at this point to push for payment? Does the mechanics lien hold value still without enforcing it with an attorney?...Read More

I loaned personal funds to my business (partnership) to purchase a fix and flip property. Although I handle all of our finances, closings, etc...I'm worried that my partner will not repay my personal funds after the closing. We did not complete a loan doc for my funds (an error in hindsight). Can I put a personal lien on the property my business owns to ensure I get repaid?...Read More

I work for a roofing company in Texas and sold and produced a $1.8M project for a general contractor through the company I work for.
My employer has done this in the past with other employees and it seems like he is headed there with my commissions on this project, he is going to refuse to pay my commission on this project.
The company has a retainage check coming in this month and I know he will have the funds to pay, but will refuse.
Am I able to file a lien on the retainage check with the general contractor to lock up the final check until he pays me my commission? ...Read More
I live with my mother. I hired a company to build a ADA shower that did not turn out the way I intended. (I asked for a rain shower overhead, in addition to a traditional shower head as I wanted my mother to have hot water on both her front and back. When I turn both on at the same time, the water pressure drops to a fine spray on main shower head ) I believe it could be remedied by having each on their own piping and valve...as other contractors had suggested and because when the sink faucet is turned on, which is seperate, their is great pressure out of the main shower head, but when the rain shower is turned on in addtion, is when the pressure drops. Company states it cant be remedied. I just think they do not want to have to pull the walls down and re due it. I will get second opinion and try to negotiate a stiff reduction in price to pay for someone else to re due it...but can this company put a lien on my mothers house? The contract was in my name and I hire them..I live with her and house is soley in her name...Read More

I contracted a roof replacement, metal carport, wooden deck, and gutters. The homeowners are not satisfied with the work, though I have had each trade repaired or redone and made many attempts to discount and/or redo all the minor complaints they have. They seem to not be able to satisfy. Before work was started, I had homeowner sign a contract, one page included 5% retainage rights. The homeowner is holding the remaining 50% of the funds owed instead, and some of my guys working there have heard him say he doesn’t plan on paying it at all. He is married and the wife lives there too, but I did not get her signature on any of the paperwork. Can I still file a lien?...Read More
