I hired contractor as a concrete sub on a project. He installed 90% of the work and I paid him for the project (approximately $6500.00). Unfortunately, the concrete didn't pass inspection and had to be removed. I tried a dozen times to reach him to correct the work and even sent a 24 hour notice to comply. All communications were ignored and I had to remove the faulty work at my expense. After I removed the concrete, the GC i was working for decided to take the concrete over and complete it themselves. Within 24 hours of them informing me they will be handling the concrete, my contract was terminated due to the concrete subs inability to correct the work. Do I have a good case to go after the concrete sub for the money that was paid to him for the faulty work, the cost to remove the faulty work and the damages I incurred from being terminated due to his poor craftmanship?...Read More

Hi there! I completed work on a home in la jolla Ca for inside and out window cleaning. The home owner is now reporting that there are scratches on 6 Panes of glass and is refusing to pay. The windows in question were cleaned the same way every other window in the house was cleaned and the home owner was informed of the equipment we would be using to clean the windows. I told the home owner that he should contact the window installers because it looks like the window was installed backwards and the low e coating is on the outside. The home owner is insisting on running my insurance even though I explained to him that the damage was not caused by faulty workmanship. I already filed a 20 day preliminary notice for a lien but I want to know if he would have a case if he chose to take me to court for damages and what I should do to protect my company....Read More

*RETYPED because of errors noticed after previously posted.* My company served as a subcontractor on a construction job here in Florida. The Contractor has stopped paying us and we are past the 45 days to file a NTO because we didn't think they would stop paying us. We still filed a NTO but it may not be honored at this point. The job has since momentarily shut down due to weather, contamination, complaints, and poor management. We are owed over $20,000. What is our recourse if the NTO is not honored?...Read More

FloridaLien DeadlinesNotice of Intent to LienPayment DisputesRecovery Options
I am the sub who is behind paying for his material because of disputes on another project. A rep from the supplier came to the job and threatened to lien the property. I tried to get an installment agreement to pay off the debt. The monthly I could afford was not enough so they demanded payment in full or else they would lien the property and go after my license. The general contractor freaked and paid them 5,000 and I was supposed to match that to keep the supplier from releasing the hounds. Well I somehow scraped that up but missed my mortgage payment which disqualified me from getting an equity loan which would have paid them off. I had already put time and money into making repairs on my house to qualify. Now the general wants to pay them again and deduct that from money that he owes me. I do not believe that the material supplier filed a preliminary notice, hence my question. Thank you....Read More

Ok so I let my father borrow my truck for a little while and in the process he had to do some "repairs" and actually ended up tear the entire motor apart well he could not get the computer to link up correctly and took it to a repair shop and I'm assuming did not pay because they have put a mechanics lein on my truck and as my father states are holding the truck until payment. Problem is that I did not agree to any of this being done and would just like to get my vehicle back so I can make necessary repairs. Is there anything I can do?...Read More

Long story short, there’s an older couple that I knew and they passed. They had one son and three grandchildren. The grandkids fraudulently transferred properties and stole millions of dollars after the grandpa passed. When the grandma passed the son promised me if I helped expose all their wrongdoings, theft ect. Then I could have a property and money. Now it’s coming down to court time and I did everything for them, greed has set in and they are trying not to give me what we agreed on. Two of the three grandkids stole about $4k each from me as well. My question is, can I put a lien on the properties or the estate so I can get paid before probate court? Or how do I go about getting paid? Thank you for your help....Read More
