Remodel & Renovate in Dallas>Question Details

Kirk, Other/Just Looking in Dallas, TX

What can I do if a broker refuses to pay the charges for Property Preservation services she requested?

Asked by Kirk, Dallas, TX Thu Dec 18, 2008

I'm a contractor with a newly formed business of my own and have not encountered this problem before. Can I apply a lien on the properties? Should I contact the bank that actually owns them? Please help.

Confer with attorney HOWEVER per the laws of state of Texas you have approx. 90 days from last day you completed the work. If you are not paid complete due diligence via certified letters and etc. you can apply lien up to $10K via small claims court. FYI small claims court you dont need an attorney represent you they have forms court house you can complete. The certified letters will be matter for record you made attempts to receive payment. I am hopeful you have a signed contract IF YOU DON'T it is your word vs. owner word.

Contact the broker first....then perhaps the asset holder. Then perhaps file a lien.
