Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

Do you have an employment contract where it was agreed that you'd be paid for your service?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No

Ok. Thanks.

If you don't have a contract, then you can't enforce it.....and you cannot put a lien on the property short of suing and obtaining a judgment for the amount claimed. But, if there's no contract, it would likely be impossible to successfully sue....since there'd be no cause of action.

This, your likely have to get your father to sign a contract to pay you in order to have a chance at recovering the money.
