We have a $46,115.00 contract to supply labor services only at a new construction Hampton Hotel in Rancho Cucamonga. Our CA. license #823132. We started work in Oct. 2021. We did not file a pre-lien. We have completed our contract work but have not received payment on any of our invoices. Due to the fact that this contract was for labor only, are we entitled to file a lien?...Read More

CaliforniaPreliminary Notice
The plumber I hired had a mitigation specialist come to my house to assess water damage and I signed documents for them to run a claim through my home insurance. Within 48 hours they wanted to demo my kitchen and bathroom before my claim was approved. I emailed company and called stating I wanted their equipment removed from my house and no longer wanted them to work on my home. I received a 20 day preliminary notice. I am in AZ. What does this mean? Should I be concerned that they have a lien on my house? I asked for a detailed invoice, but have not received it. The preliminary notice states $3000 for equipment and materials. What do I do?...Read More

ArizonaPreliminary Notice
I'm a subcontractor working for a general contractor on a commercial project. I filed a Notice to Owner on time, but I didn't realize until now that the Notice to Owner listed the job name as the general contractor - instead of the actual general contractor, who is my customer. The general contractor isn't on the NTO at all, and I didn't realize it until now, many months past the 45 day deadline, so I don't think I can refile. Now the owner wants an unconditional final lien release, even though I haven't been paid in full yet, since the NTO didn't give the correct general contractor information. What should I do? My initial thought is that I might as well give the lien release and hope for the best, since the NTO is probably invalid, but I wanted to double check....Read More

CaliforniaPreliminary Notice
I know Iowa requires a preliminary notice of lien rights be provided to the customer before work begins or soon after. That being said, we do not have an "official form" for this; however, the fine print on our contract has a line that says the following: "Pre-Lien Notice: company hereby provides notification that any person or company supplying labor or material for this improvement to your property may file a lien against your property if that person or company is not paid for their contributions. Upon default in payment, a lien will be placed on the property and charges will be added from the date of substantial completion at the maximum rate allowed by law." Is this sufficient, or is there an actual official form that's needed in Iowa? Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give. Sincerely, Joe James...Read More
