Twelve months ago a company was going to place window tinting to windows in my house. I signed a contract that they were going to do this for $8,000. They never completed the job. The contract was no payments for one year no interest if payed in full 12 months later. I contact them many times advising them to stop payment to the company since job was not done. Now they say I signed therefore I owe. I am being threatened by them of a lien against my home for the total amount plus 30% interest compounded etc. My question is how can they be stopped without me being ripoff the $8,000.
Or, if they do not file some time after the lien, the lien simply drops off itself.
Thank you ,
but quick what does the above statement mean, as far as when they don't file etc>?
