Question DetailsAsked on 7/8/2015

Can a sub contractor put a lien on my property?

I hired a contractor who then hired a sub contractor for the concert work. Now the sub contractor says he will put a lien on my property since he has not been paid by the contractor. Can he do this?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Here are two responses to prior questions which might help -

A sub (or supplier or engineer or architect) can file a lien to cover an unpaid bill - even if you paid the general contractor and he failed to pay them.

Take this seriously - try to get the GC to pay the sub AND get a lien release (or give you proof of payment to the sub AND the GC should get the lien release from the sub), otherwise you need an attorney ASAP.
