General Question. We are an equipment supplier and we only rent/lease/sale equipment to our customers (subcontractor). Our business structure is to bill on a monthly basis. When equipment is rented we receive a contract with a job address that the equipment is on at that time. However, the equipment could potentially move to different job locations throughout the month. How do we send out monthly notices and potentially file a lien with our business structure?...Read More

I work for myself. I was hired by my buddies boss to rebuild a motor in a 300 Chrysler. This motor was already taken apart and left on the ground. I'm the 2nd person to pick up after the 1st guy left. We were both unsure if it would start after o rebuilt it from this state. After 2 months of rebuilding this motor, it would not start. He called me last week and said he was taking it to a dealership. He owes for my labor over these 2 months. Do I lean his home or the vehicle. His intentions were/are to sell it after it starts. If it ever does. ...Read More

How do I go about getting the information I need? What if they don't give me the information within the 20 days of starting work?...Read More

Hello, I am trying to file an NC-required preliminary notice. If I understand correctly, this notice must be sent to a lien agent (NC - title insurance company) rather than the property owner. I read the article "What Is a Lien Agent?" which states that these agents are "highly visible" compared to trying to find a property owner, but the article doesn't mention how I would go about finding them. Can you please shed some light on how I might find the lien agent for a construction job? Thanks so much for your help!...Read More

We have an opportunity to see product in bulk out of state. The purchaser wants to place us on 30 days net. While I am negotiating that detail, it non the less brings up the issue of potential non payment. How do preliminary notices apply to goods purchased out of state? I am sure they are available, my question is directed toward their enforceability. I am trying to avoid purchasing credit insurance and hope inter state purchases can and will be lien able. ...Read More
