My fence contractor began work back in the beginning of May. They never filed a Preliminary Notice. Their work is terrible and while they have now completed the job yesterday (8/19/2021) to the best of their ability though not perfect, the refuse to take less than full payment. They want to put a lien on my house for the balance of $1877 as I am willing to still give $1877 additional to the $3755 owed. I am also the leasee of the property owned by a trust where I am the beneficiary, but not the trustee. Can they put a lien this late or take any action against me for non full payment?

In Ohio, if the General Contractor has a direct executed contract with the Owner -does the General Contractor have to send out a "Notice of Furnishings" or is the Notice of Furnishings in Ohio only for Subcontractors and Material Suppliers who do not have a "direct Contract" with the Owner. The General Contractor is using subcontractors on the Project. We know "when" there is "no" Notice of Commencement filed with the County, no one has to send out a "Notice of Furnishings" to preserve Lien rights in Ohio. It seems everything is silent on any specific process for the General Contractor to follow other than for the General Contractor to file a lien if he does not get paid without anything being said about doing anything before the lien is filed to preserve the General Contractor's lien rights. ...Read More

What are my options if a contractor had me sign a contract (I am not a legal representative of the party which owns the property - who are my parents) and the verbal contracts we made have been ignored for that which is written. They have now sent a Twenty Day Preliminary Notice which is addressed to my father's name yet he did not sign the contract. Do I respond to the notice as it was mailed to the property, and I live here but my parents do not....Read More
