Our customer was renting our equipment for work that he was doing as a sub-contractor on a construction site and significantly damaged the rental equipment. Per the rental agreement, the customer is responsible for 1. rent while the equipment is being repaired 2. loss of value of the equipment due to the damages 3. Repair cost to repair the damages. The customer hasn't paid any of these 3 components. Is it proper to include these charges in the lien amount, or do we need to amend the lien to include only one or two of these components. ...Read More

I filed a lien on a job. Now all of the sudden my contractor wants me to sign a lien waiver because the bonding agency, owner, general contractor, and material provider all are trying to get paid. My contractor sent over a lien release form. Do I legally have to sign and return this form without being paid first? My concern is that if I sign this the contractor will not provide the check owed. As he is delinquent on another invoice for another job. I am in another state working right now, so doing a person to person exchange is not possible. What are my options. Thank you, Daniel Krek...Read More

I'm a GC on a project in Massachusetts. I signed a contract with someone for the excavation for $16,500. It had a date of completion in the contract of November 4th. He missed this timeline by about 2 weeks before I finally removed him from the project. He is now claiming he removed more dirt from the site than the contracted amount and has filed a lien for $40,000 in total. I'm not sure what to take as next steps....Read More

I had my roof replaced October 1st, 2021 after a large hail storm hit my area. I contacted my insurance company and then hired a local Roofing Company to replace the roof. I paid the full invoice amount for the completed work and materials in the amount of $13,533. Last week, I received a certified letter with a Notice of Intent to File a Lien Statement on my home by the roofing material supplier in the amount of $4,681. I have attempted to reach the roofing company to find a resolution to their delinquent payment practices, with no response. Wondering what my options are or if I am liable in the State of Colorado since I paid for everything already and this a "Full Price Lien State"? I would appreciate some guidance as this is a very unsettling situation. Thank you!...Read More

I am coming from the other side, where we signed an estimate, they began work and collecting funds but never gave us any sort of pay schedule. Or breakdown as we went. Then, out of the blue, I get an email saying they messed up and should have been collecting all along and expected me to write a check for 15k, on the spot. Then they stated that "Oh yeah, and there is the final payment due too ... so can you write us a check for 20k?" I said, "Sure after I get an invoice showing me not only how we got to the ESTIMATED cost but then went 12k over that estimate." There was 1 change order that was signed off by us. The rest that they are claiming they cannot legitimize. Every attempt I have made to try and discuss this was thwarted and now they have a lawyer coming after me. HELP! I want this to be in good faith but they didn't even pull permits and they are claiming that we owe them for that, is it is in the estimate. Just a lot of shady things going on and I am looking for some expert advise. ...Read More

Hello I worked on a construction project and the final payment was never remitted. it is 25 thousand and now over 40K with interest charges. Customer owner/was also the GC in the building -I provided door access and thermal monitors. The system has been running since 2018, when I went back to receive my final payment from finalizing the "punch list". I placed written final demand and The General attorney for the firm agreed I will be paid after the ;ist. When I arrived on site, there was a new General attorney and no one to pay me. The new Attorney made me go over all details again, said there was yet another punch list, agreed to my payment and then left. Why> Both attorneys were also Never Paid. The project was a NY State Building Brooklyn Army Terminal, and the GC was also the owner, of this compounding pharmacy. ...Read More
