Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
Does the contract contain a warranty of labor? What is the nature of the required repairs?
Are you online with me?
The contractor can file his lien so long as it has been 90 days or less form the last date any work or supplies were furnished.
Your recourse is to sue the contractor for breach of contract and breach of the warranty. That should also result in the court ordering the removal of the lien.
Also, the lien does not last forever must be foreclosed by the contractor within 8 mos of filing or it expires. So, if the contractor does not foreclose it just goes away (the lien, not the claim).
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
