I just found that...

I just found that a contractor that I hired to perform the supervision and framing of my new construction home filed a notice of right against my property and it is filed with the Jackson County Missouri courthouse. I was not notified of this. I have had some issues with them and I have asked him on multiple occasions to sit down and discuss the bill because they were not for filling their contract will obligation and then I found this was filed. What does this mean?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a MO lawyer about this?

Not yet, I just found it yesterday online. I have an appointment with one next week

What is a notice of right that a contractor filed? It’s against my new construction property that they’ve been working on and are not satisfying their contract so I have not paid them in full.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No, I’m having a meeting with the lawyer next week Just trying to find out what that means when they do this
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 3 months ago
Are they claiming a lien for unpaid fees?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
