Confer with attorney however in future have all in writing. Did you request for receipts and money paid? Thought about splitting the difference not worth time vested in dispute?

There are certain statues for a contractor lien a property.

I found this article written by a law firm in North Richland Hills regarding residential construction requirements for property in Texas:

I think you'll find this article very interesting. After reading it, contact a real estate attorney for answers to your specific situation and don't be afraid to ask them if they charge for the initial consultation, many do not.

After you speak with the attorney, I think it will put your mind at ease.

Good luck.

Best Regards,
