I'm the material supplier to one sub-contractor who installs our product for one general contractor.
I got a bad feeling about one of our clients, and have verified all the invoices from February in the system.
It's one customer with over 3 dozen invoices, but only 3 General Contractors.
Can I lump the multiple invoices to each of the three respective general contractors ? These are for new home sales, and I'm not sure if someone even purchased this homes in the past 2 months - should I just blanket send each invoice to each of the homes as well ?...Read More

My company name is 3in1 tj construction.
The company did not pay because the equipment was rented under the company name. But I got a notice. At the time of construction, I didn't even need to rent such equipment, I don't know what kind of company I hired, I didn't even have to hire.

Hello, I own a small trucking company that hauls material for a general contractor that has portable concrete towers, I am a sub-subcontractor as I work for a sub to the GC on a Commercial project.
I bill weekly, each invoice is due in 30days. So I should be getting a check weekly now that we have been on the project for a few months.
We haven't had any issues so far getting paid, however, our invoices are getting bigger and a check that I deposited this week bounced. I just want to be sure I'm proctecting my lien rights in a timely fashion. The check that bounced was to cover two weeks 8/26/20 thru 9/12/20, I believe that because some of the work was done in August that I would have to send my first notice by October 15th? is this correct? Would that be the Preliminary Notice? or an NOI?...Read More
This project was done for the housing devlopment. The developer was listed as the owner. Because it had a street address when that home was sold it was marked as possible residential. We are now being told we have no lien rights because the last notice sent should have been residential not commercial even though the work was not just for the house it was for the entire development. This raises concern for the multitude of jobs we have for new housing development. At what point if any should this have been listed as residential? Should new housing developments be listed as residential or commercial?...Read More
Supplier company, need to understand the State of Tennessee, as I know the laws have changed. Like most states you file a preliminary notice. TN, is that just after the 90 days of non-payment?...Read More
We invoice our customer several months after completing the work. Will this complicate our notice process? We are required to send monthly notices based off of the INVOICE date and not the month in which the labor took place, correct? This can complicate things, because at times we will be sending our last notice and the lien during the same month....Read More
I bought a house in Tennessee that is being renovated before my daughter can move in. I do not live in Tennessee. I retained a contractor to perform certain limited pre-renovation services. I paid that contractor’s bill. I have since learned that, without my knowledge or consent, the contractor sub-contracted with another entity to perform part of the work. I learned about that when I received a Notice of Non-Payment letter dated 90 days after the last day of the month that the subcontractor’s work was done.
Although the property is non owner-occupied, can the subcontractor file a legitimate mechanic’s lien?
We are a steel contractor with a contract to fabricate and erect an industrial project in TN (private sector). Our customer is a General Contractor who is working for the owner. We are nearing the end of the project and our customer has been slow to pay and we have ~$250k in Change Order Requests outstanding. I want to ensure that we preserve lien rights because we may need that pressure to get paid and / or get change orders approved. If work commenced on 4/3/2020 do we still have lien rights?...Read More
We are working for JE Dunn doing the demolition in phases for the remodel and expansion of the San Marcos Library for the City of San Marcos, TX. We started work on February 18, 2020 which was a time and material change order to our original contract. It took JE Dunn February, March and part of April to issue the change order that they signed our CO proposal for the work. We also did work related to our original contract. We billed the change order (which was finally issued and per JE Dunn approved) and the additional work we did on April 21, 2020. We have not been paid for this work. We are looking at 45 days since pay app and no money yet we started working in February. JE Dunn has provided their bond information. What are our options?...Read More
I am a licensed contractor in Maryland and my contract calls for 24% interest on unpaid balances when they are past due.
Is it legal for me to charge the 24% interest If it's prejudgment? And once I get a judgment then the interest rate would then be at the legal rate in Maryland.
Or do I have to change my contract so that it's at the post-judgment interest rate from the date of the default....Read More
