Was contracted by a third party insurance company to perform emergency services at a property and they instructed us to leave our equipment and to not contact the homeowner. We tried multiple times to get contact from either the primary insurance provider or the third party that sent us out but could not get any responses. So our equipment sat on site and accrued charges, which we reminded both parties about multiple times. We eventually just went and picked up our equipment but neither company is responding to the bill. We placed a lien on the customer's property but since the homeowner didn't contract us, they are now threatening legal action against us. What are our options?...Read More

My client is being very unreasonable, very nit picky, have been doing extra work that she is asking for, I’ve been trying to work with her but she now refuses to pay and I can’t keep going with no pay for my workers. Unfortunately the contract states that the remaining balance is due at end of project, but with all the unrealistic redos she’s been asking of us, we can’t continue. ...Read More

I am a 2nd tier sub contractor on a Public High School project in Texas. The sub contractor has not paid us according to our agreement. We have added late charges per our agreement. We filed our public monthly notices. The general contractor has issued a joint check with a partial lien release. They did not include the service fees stating that was not their problem. Can I refuse to sign and demand the service fees be included in the joint check?...Read More

I built my home 3 years ago and it came with a 30 year dry basement guarantee. The basement is leaking and the builder/warranty holders are not responding to my many requests for resolution (it's been 3 months). I followed the warranty to the letter, but may need representation. How do I proceed?...Read More

I was hired by a guy I called my friend. He was hired by a disaster restoration company. He wouldnt tell me what company, or which insurance company. I performed services and provided materials for plumbing repairs. When I gave him the invoice he began to question everything on it. He also became verbally abusive. He told me he required all of my receipts for materials. I do have mark up on my parts. I also added profit and overhead to the bill. I can’t seem to get him to call me back. I performed this work on time and materials. No upfront contract. I also have been made aware that the house has asbestos in the mud of the walls and I did cut holes which has exposed me. What can I do to get paid?...Read More

My contract with the general contractor doesn't contain any penalties for not meeting the project schedule. It does however contain arbitration language should the parties be unable to settle a dispute. The project was scheduled for completion 4-5 weeks from the start date. The project is 17 weeks behind schedule. I sent the contractor a cure letter to complete the project in 10 days as the project has been at 90% mark for 10 weeks. is the 10 day cure letter sufficient? Also, does the contractor have to warranty work already completed even if the contract is terminated?...Read More

I am home owner and hired a contractor to extend my deck and build new finished porch over (roof/ceiling) over existing deck. There was no contract signed with him as he is a neighbor and all discussions were verbal. He informed that he is licensed and registered to do construction business. He showed his work's video also. However, after doing deck extension, he started to remove items/work to be done and started behaving very rudely and hence I decided to not continue to work with him after porch framing and ceiling was done. He was paid his fair share according to work performed. He filed a claim in Forsyth County Magistrate court for $4500 claiming he completed with work and I am not paying his dues....Read More

We (based in NYC )provided $35k worth of signage to a company that went out of business. Prior to going under, they promised that they were just awaiting funding before paying us for our services in New Jersey. Now the new owner of the project is not responding to any emails or phone calls. The ability to file a lien expires in new jersey after 90 days of completing the work, but they had continued to promise us payment for a long time after that. What options do we have?...Read More
