To whom it may concern, I filed a lien against a contractor for the non payment of one weeks worth of work. I received a call from the material provider last week. They are who hired the installer who contracted me for part of the install. Then later that day the contractor who hired me was emailing me asking for COI’s stating that is the reason why I had not been paid. So within 24hrs I sent over my COI’s. Now he has sent me a lien release form. It states that if I sign the waiver I will be paid. I have already file the lien, will signing this release negate my lien? Or do I not sign until the payment is made. Thank you, Daniel Krek...Read More

I'm not being fully paid on a residential project. I reached out to the owner of project and advised a lien would take place. I was advised a full lien waiver was signed by GC on job. The GC did make a partial payment to us but we never signed a waiver or was even asked to sign one. The owner basically told us there is nothing we can do to them and they aren't paying any thing. That we need to work it out with GC as they have been fully paid. How do I proceed now?...Read More

We have filed a lien for a project in Fort Worth, TX. The GC has advised the following: Once the Waiver has been executed, please have the Tarrant County Clerk attach it to the Lien and provide me with a copy of documentation of the attachment (normally notarized/stamped receipt). As soon as I have the documentation, I can release payment. I haven't heard of that before. Is that something that can be done and if so, how do I do this through Levelset?...Read More

My family received a mechanics lien from a construction business we have never worked with. When we reached out to the business to get details on the work they believed they had done, we received no response. I have completed a notice of contest for the Georgia clerk's office but I want to make sure I submit to the necessary parties. Should I submit it to the clerk's office only or should I send a copy to the business' address on the lien? Also, what steps should I take after the 60-90 days if no response has been received? Thank you. ...Read More

A former tenant has filed a construction lien on my property he used to rent in retaliation for not renewing his lease. He now fraudulently claims he worked on the property as a handyman and was never paid. He is not a licensed contractor or a sub, no NOC was ever filed, no permits were ever pulled, he wanted to paint his room and got my permission to paint and I supplied the paint for him. He also took the liberty to do minor repairs on his own, fix outlets etc. without permission and to install patio enclosure without my permission. He now claims he wants me to pay nearly $12K for the work he was never allowed to do and recorded a lien. What should I do?...Read More

I was contact by a mitigation company said a lien was filed two years ago ( without my knowledge ) on a roof job that’s was completed and paid thru insurance 3 years ago. It’s a total surprise for me and the amount is $2000. I felt being scammed but don’t want to take it lightly. What option do I have? Do I ignore the mitigation company or ? The roof company was already closed out due to law suit and they transferred the “ balance” to another company now it’s with some profession collector. Advise appreciated...Read More

What if the company filing the lien did work on the property from 2016-2021 but their license expired in 2019. Are they still able to file the lien? They continued the construction while unlicensed. In other words, they started the work with a license but it expired in the middle of the construction and they kept working without it. ...Read More

Hello Support, I hope this message finds you well. I had contracted a Painting(Garage & Laundry room and Garage Epoxy Flooring) to a local contractor in Florida (Brevard County). The total cost of the project was about $1850 dollars. The scope of the project outlined in the initial estimate was not followed precisely, but I choose to follow the contractor's professional advice. The issues that arise stem mainly from the epoxy part of the job, having several air pockets on the floor resulting from epoxy not adhering properly. After having a call with Sherwin Williams(Brand of Expoy used) agent, she advised that epoxy should not be poured onto fresh concrete or should be given weeks of drying time before doing so. The pouring of fresh concrete was not part of the scope of the project and it replaced 'repairing of cracks' and acid washing and scoffing the concrete. Anyway, the contractor dealt with all of my objects and the job became almost salvageable. The final aspect of adding the prescribed amount of clear coat (3) was not done in a timely fashion or as per the product specification required. Sherwin William's brand of epoxy clear coat requires additional coats to be added before 72 hours window. Here is the contractor took weeks to respond back to my message after I advised him that I'll get someone else to do finish or redo the job. He finally replied and hurried someone to come finish the job. I told him no one is touching the job unless the specification of Sherwin William is followed;re-scoff before adding clear coat since it was way beyond the application window. He then threatened a Lien on the property via Text. However, we came to an agreement that if he would take the risk of adding the clearcoat and everything turn out favorable after 72 hours he will be paid and so far the finish looks fine. Now before paying him, I need a legal instrument that would protect me from any future threats, and so i was looking at your conditional waiver. Is this the right legal instrument to use? Be advised I've already given him a 50% advance payment as well. Thanks Regards ...Read More

Hi, I have filed a lien on a job and the customer is now willing to pay. They've requested a conditional final. Is that still the standard document that I should use to agree to remove the lien? Or is there a 'conditional final for lien removal document' or something to that effect?...Read More
