I believe I am going to file an answer because I did not get proper notification of my ability to answer in the first place. Because I would have argued that there is no dates to pay or dates of completion on the contract. Aslo, what if I have a signed P&L before the sherrif's sale?
Well...your not out of the woods yet. The motions you are filing are the procedures needed to get a chance to stop the sale. However, they are not a guarantee. In the end, it is up to the judge. Remember to ask for an emergency hearing when you file the motions as the sale is taking place on the 20th.
In regard to a Purchase and Sale Agreement, this will not extinguish an executed lien with a judicial sale order unless the Agreement is between you and the contractor.
I hope you are able to stop the contractor from executing. Good Luck,
