New to the construction loan process. If I'm purchasing materials and supplies for the project from online vendors (i.e. vistaprint, global industries, amazon, etc.) do I need to get a lien release from those suppliers? ...Read More

We completed a job, Jollibee, recently and we did file a mechanics lien. The contractor, JG Construction, still owes us $183,000. Jollibee is asking us to complete the bond release. But we're afraid if we do, we won't get paid in full. The other option we're considering is to file an intent to foreclose on the property. I think we have until the end of March to file. I can also send you the documents that Jollibee sent us. I don't see an option to upload a document though. I can be reached at 619-871-2305 or at mmorgan@magnumsp.com. Thank you, Mike Morgan Magnum Sealing & Paving....Read More

We had a LIEN-MECHANICS/SUB place on our home by a horrible contractor. He did it just to make our lives miserable. The was in Jan. 2016. The lawyer we had at the time went in 2018 to court just after the 2 years was up. However, I went to look at Lake County and the Lien is still showing. How do I get this removed, we are listing our home in the next two weeks. I am not understanding how a lien abandoned by the contractor is still lingering now. I am concerned. Thank you....Read More

I am the owner of a property in New York state. Four years ago 2 people put mechanic's liens on a property I own. The liens are not detailed in breakdown of costs. Just some numbers scrambled down and a total. The numbers don't even add up to the total. Thousands of dollars off. The liens are fraudulent as I never hired these people to do work on the house and they filed the liens for spite. They also never served the liens on me. There is no affidavit of service with the county clerk for these liens. How would this affect my ability to refinance the property....Read More

I hired a GC to do a home renovation in GA. The GC hired an electrician, who was later fired for not communicating/showing up when scheduled. The electrician started contacting me (the homeowner) directly with threatening messages that included "I am going to love filing a lien on your house" and "let me know when I can get check or else". The GC paid him his requested amount, and the electrician wrote in an email he was "Paid in full" so that the GC could get the permit switched to new electrician. Now the electrician refuses to provide a lien release, and is requesting additional funds over and above the amount they initially requested. Please note, all payments requested since being fired are mostly false, but the GC paid to keep the property free and clear. How do I show the county that this lien is frivolous, or do I need to go the legal route? If so, can i recoup legal fees from the electrician?...Read More

We provided a final on 02/07/2020 for a school project in Florida from 2019. The same contractor (customer) started ordering more material in June of 2020 though October of 2020 for the same project. We did not file a new NTO on the project. Does the final we provided on 02/07/2020 cover all subsequent invoices, or is it voided because they ordered more material after the final? ...Read More

We are working for a General Contractor who is asking for an unconditional lien waiver after payment of invoice where an interim (conditional) lien waiver was previously submitted prior to paying the next invoice. Does Georgia have a form for an unconditional lien waiver that is separate from a Final Lien Waiver and can the GC require that we fill out and submit this form?...Read More

Our projects are often performed in stages - Engineering and Construction. Sometimes we don't know whether we will be hired as the GC for the Construction phase. If the next phase is undetermined, but we are submitting our final Engineering phase invoice - what lien waiver should we use - progress or final?...Read More

I'm a general contracting who uses sub-contractors on projects. We are not always aware of the suppliers they use to pick up or drop materials on project sites. Generally their accounts with suppliers are net 30 day accounts. In most cases completion of work and their invoices for payment are received prior to their suppliers requiring payment from them. In instances where they don't or can't provide us with a material release, is it good practice to hold their payment for 20 from their last day of work? Do their suppliers continue to have lien rights? If not what is the best way to manage this. Thank you Diane...Read More

We have a construction project in Georgia where we are submitting monthly pay applications. We have not been paid on application #2 and it is nearing 60 days from the time the application was submitted, however an interim lien release has not been requested for that specific pay application. Since the interim lien release was not requested or completed for this specific pay application how long would I have to file a lien or notice of non payment for this pay application if interim lien releases have been filed on all other pay applications for the project?...Read More
