We've recently been asked by our GC to onboard, in order to receive our pay requests. This is a third party lien collecting company, who holds money in a trust (?) and then releases payment once an unconditional is signed. Is this safe? Legal? to have Subcontractors sign their unconditional BEFORE payment is fully received?...Read More

Hello, We filed a lien through you for Kimberly Aguilar and she is now selling her home and the title company is asking for a payoff letter for the property. The letter has to show the balance along with any interest that may have been charged. It needs to state who the check needs to be payable too and where to mail the check. And lift the judgment on the house once we receive payment. Can you help us with this?...Read More

We had a bad contractor fired for very poor workmanship and he put a lein on my clients home for $11,000. So we paid off the lein to the county clerk and the subcontractor had one year to bring a law suit. The sub contractor never sued since he had no mean of winning. How do we get our 11,000 from the town clerk....Read More

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

There are multiple issues with this project and due to health conditions the bonding company that took over the original contract is pulling of the job. They are releasing us as the sub contractor. We are waiting a release of lien or something that releases us from every imaginable and unimaginable scenario. Can zlien help us with that or is there anything you can suggest?...Read More

We hired a roofing contractor to install insulation, replace new plywood sheathing and new asphalt shingles. There were the following six total suppliers and subcontractors on the project: a) Insulation and plywood sheathing supplier b) Shingle Supplier c) Gutter Contractor d) Electrician (since they accidently cut some wires in the attic) e) Dumpster Service f) Portable Toilet Service The roofing contractor is only providing me with 4 lien releases (a, b, c, and d). The contractor is saying that in WA State only vendors/contractors that provide more that $1000 in goods or services need to provide a lien release. Is this true? We have had the dumpster sitting on our driveway for over 1.5 month and they have had to switch out the dumpster 3 times so I'm worried that this might be a huge bill. Also, with the portable toilet (honey bucket), it has been sitting on our driveway for over 1.5 months as well. I have called WA State L&I and they suggest I get the roofing contractor to provide signed lien release on all supplier and subcontractors. When I asked the roofer a second time, he again stated that only vendors and suppliers over $1,000 is required to provide lien release. What do I do now to protect myself? Is he correct? Thanks! ...Read More

The Pa corporation is stating that it is illegal under PA law for them to provide a conditional release even if it is contingent upon payment. My understanding of the applicable stautes is that as long as the release is predicated upon their receipt of payment they are legal under PA law....Read More

I am a residential homeowner in Texas. My wife and I are contracted through a custom home builder to build our plan. We have continually paid him when draw requested initially after the job was completed, then during progress and lastly before work was even performed. The last several draws have pulled us into a heated dispute concerning quality of work or timelines for completion. Recently, we were notified of a subcontractor filing a lien against us from a draw we paid to him 3 months prior and another 2 additional subs discovered by us still unpaid. After confrontation, a month ago, he now says all bills are up to date. He won't provide paid receipts or invoices for proof and we have nothing in the contract that forces him to. He has slandered us with the subs and they will not discuss details with us to ensure our financial future. How do we keep from paying twice or additional charges from contractors he has failed to pay up to date? Can we make him provide lien waivers from these subs under Texas law now after time has passed? The contract does state all subs will be paid by him although, there is no timeframe listed unlike what's found in the Texas Prompt Payment Act? Where do we go from here so that it will not happen?...Read More
