I have paid a contractor for work and the contractor is refusing to finish the job until payment is made in full for work yet to be completed. Now the contractor is going to file a lien against the property for my refusal to pay in full before the work is completed. Is this a fraudulent claim? Thanks...Read More

We did mitigation for a bar that is located in a strip mall. The strip mall is owned by the landlord and the bar is owned by the tenant. We did no work on any structure that is owned by the landlord therefore, we have no contract with him and he had no part in the claim or payments. The claim was invoiced in 4 different parts per insurance request- all but 1 invoice has been paid in full and 1 other invoice has been partially paid (about a $60k balance). When we filed the lien, it was placed on the landlord's property as advised- leaving a very unhappy landlord. Also, since the lien was filed, we have been in negotiations with the insurance company to try to come to an agreement but getting nowhere. Therefore, the amount turned in when the lien was filed with is different then the current amount due. The landlord's attorney is coming at me with a sharp stick because of those details and understandably, is defending his client. What would be the best way to handle this very specific but unique situation?...Read More

When we filed a lien back in May of 2018, it was filed to the incorrect owner (a family trust) but correct address. The property had been sold in January of 2018 to a member of the family trust. Can we file another lien against the property as the new owner, is the person who signed our contract and owes $5k. The original lien was filed against the original owner who had the property in a family trust name. It should also be noted that the property is in Osceola County Florida, but the owner resides in Scotland, U.K....Read More

Can a subcontractor (Asphalt Company) file a mechanics lien against a commercial property for resurfacing a business driveway that PG&E dug holes in to replace gas lines. PG&E (Calif.) gave them instructions to resurface the whole driveway and not just the small areas where they dug the holes. Do I have any recourse to block or remove their lien if they file one. Nothing has happened yet. Larry G...Read More
