This answer was rated:

I am a subcontractor and I would like to know if I can put a lien on the house that I worked on because the general contractor doesn't want to pay me. Also I don't know if there'll be a problem since I don't have a copy of the contract that I signed prior to starting this job.

BizAttorney :

Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight.

BizAttorney :

Yes, you can put a mechanic's lien on the property because the GC didn't pay you. You have to follow the rules exactly though. Do you have those steps?

BizAttorney :

Ultimately, you need to give the owner of the property notice before filing a lien.

BizAttorney :

If the owner doesn't pay, then you can file the mechanic's lien.

BizAttorney :

Are you there?
