Thank you for requesting me.
What province are you in please?
When did you substantially complete the work, exactly?
In Alberta, you can register a builders lien on title so long as you do so within 45 days of having substantially completed the work.
Then, with another 180 days you have to start a lawsuit, obtain a certificate of pending litigation from the court office when you start tge lawsuit, and register that on title as well.
Your next step should be either to send a letter threatening to do this at once and or you should retain your own lawyer to assist you with respect to registering the lien on title.
There is no legal basis to do that. You would have to file a false affidavit which is perjury.
