Do you know anything about the customer - is it a sole proprietor, corporation or what?

sole proprietor
Expert:  Law Pro replied 6 years ago.
Do you know if he owns land that his business is operated out of? Do you know if the land is jointly owned with a spouse?

I think its a lease bussiness.

Then you can't file a mechanics lien against the real estate.

How much money are you talking about? Does the business seem like it's an ongoing concern and not going out of business or what?
