I am a general contractor half way through a addition and remodel the home owner decided I was to expensive. She took over paying the final bills to the last of the subcontractors I had brought in. She told me she would find another to finish the job. She will not pay me for the remainder of the window replacement. She is now saying she is not pleased with the work that one of the subcontractor did. But she paid him directly from her and not through me.

I'm being told a story and I can't understand how she thinks she can save the house. If I'm being told the truth, she claims she has 2 foreclosures. One is from her company they used their house as collateral. She says they called in loan. She also claims she is in foreclosure on her personal mortgage. From my understanding she owes 55 thousands on the mortgage and the business loan was a half a million. She is in forbearance. She says she's is getting it until March wich my understanding is it ends December all home covid programs end. We live in long Island NY. So how is this house savable and also it will be left to her only child . Won't her get the lien debt if the house is willed to him? Please help me know the truth as it affects my life in unimaginable ways. Thank you....Read More

We completed a trauma clean up for a client who had a deceased family member, but the property owner was unaware she was the owner (on the deed). The person the authorized the work is refusing to pay the bill because she did not authorize the work herself. I filed a lien, but the mailing address for the lien is not the mailing address of the client, and the lien wasn't properly delivered. Will the lien still be valid if it isn't delivered to the property owner?...Read More
