I filed a lien a month ago. I haven't heard from the customer and I haven't received payment. I know I have one year to enforce the lien but want to know more about that process and what is required from me?...Read More
I am a property manager & the owner died last year. We received notice of the person who is now appointed for her estate. We have been in communication with him to fix up the property for him to rerent or sell. We have done work to the property to improve as well as utilities for over a year & other things. He is now avoiding all forms of communication. Last week we stopped utilities as well as the yard work (which I know we can't claim for) What exactly are we able to file on or is it another route we should be taking? If this is the route & we can include utilities does the deadline start from the last payment or when it was shut off?...Read More
I had a contractor who quit on my bathroom project in Ohio and now wanting me to pay 90% (which is all but 550 of the original contract price) I have had 4 other people come out and give estimates on what it would cost to complete and they are all in the 2000 amount..
When the contract started I had a tub / a shower / 2 sinks / toilet / lights / outlets / light switches and now have NONE of these items available to me. Also the floor has not been grouted / drywall not completed / tile not completed / painting not completed.
He is sending me threatening e-mails and texts now saying he is going to put a mechanics lien on my property if I do not pay 90%
I did not pay anything up front terms of his contract) and offered to pay 50% until they finished
What are my options? ...Read More

We have a contract in Wisconsin with KSW Construction. The situation is as follows:
Contract amount is $74,550, of which we have been paid $63,275.00, leaving a balance of $11,275.00 (before including our Change Order). Once we include our Change Order for the additional labor done on 3 demising wall openings in the amount of $12,000.00 (which has not been approved), this brings our total contract amount to $86,550.00, bringing the total amount stilled owed to us to $23,275.00. Once we take into consideration KSW's deductive Change Order (which I will not sign until they sign ours) in the amount of $11,320.00, this lowers the amount owed to us to $11,955.00 (assuming all goes as planned). Our last day at the jobsite was 27NOV,2020.
I was under the impression that along with the sate of Illinois, we had 90 days from our last date onsite to submit our preliminary notice to the GC. I was just informed by our Illinois mechanics lien attorney, Steve Goba, that each state has its own mechanics lien regulations/restrictions. Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. We really would want to lose out this money owed to us.
Call me or email me at your earliest convenience if you have any questions. Let me know what documentation i'd need to share with you guys.

I'm not a builder. I preformed some logging work on a property in the state of Washington. I was told (from your website) that that state requires a contractor to register (as in business license) and obtain a certifcate of registration? in order to file a mechanic's lien. Can I file a lien a) based upon the work I did (logging) and b) but without a specific business license (related to logging)? c) what is a certificate of registration? d) any other issues I might have regarding legally being able to file a lien? ...Read More
I recently had a house fire and was referred to a General Contractor from my Public Adjuster,. After months of delaying the project, they finally started working on my house. I found many issues in their work and asked them to pause everything. They ended up quitting the job and overbilled excessively for things they did not do. They did not finish the job and they failed the electric and structural inspection from the city. They are asking for the entire amount, despite them not finishing the job. I have evidence from an independent inspector showing that they overbilled by 100% or more in many areas inside the scope of work. After sharing the discrepancies with them and trying to resolve the situation, they came back threatening me with a mechanics lien and saying that they will be holding my personal belongings and not giving them back until they are paid. (They have some of my contents in their warehouse because of my fire). They have been unprofessional, condescending, and quick to threaten rather than try to come and fix all of their issues. On top of that, I don't think they had ever given me a contract to sign. How do I deal with a GC who is committing blatant fraud, coercion, and strong-arm tactics to try to get paid money that is not owed to them? Especially if there is no contract in place. Thanks...Read More
