Is it possable for a company to place a lein on a house for $150.00, when the company did not fulfill a agreement?
Hello,Thank you for using JA..The company would first have to sue the owner and get a judgment against them for some type of breach of contract. If they get a judgment, they can then file a lien on the person's property in an effort to collect on the judgment. Assuming that they did so and the owner never paid, the creditor could then foreclose and force a sale of the property to pay the judgment. .However, it is pretty unlikely that the creditor would go to the time and expense of filing suit and a lien for $150.00.

Thank You so much for getting that answer back to me. Just one more question. Due to this company not following thru on the agreement of taking care of my pool, I had to pay another pool company $500.00 to even get the pool useable again. If he followes thru with his treats can I sue him for what he cost me by not doing the job he was surpose to. That pool company is willing to back me 100%, so are my neighbors that saw it.
If the company has breached the contract that they had with you, and it has caused you damages due to their negligence or misconduct, then yes, you would be able to file suit under a breach of contract claim and sue for your damages..
