    Good question. I assume you are talking about the Notice of Right to a Lien as required by ORS 87.021 (It should state so at the top of the Notice). This notice is required may be given at anytime, but the notice only protects the right to perfect a lien for materials, equipment and labor or services provided after a date which is eight days, not including weekends and holidays, before the notice is given to the homeowner (by personal delivery or certified mail). This notice does not mean a...

  2. Writ of garnishment for 60 days continuing lien on earnings and payments under contract (washington state)

    Like most posts, more facts are needed to fully evaluate your matter. Generally speaking, however, in order to "garnish" in Washington, the creditor needs to first obtain a judgment against you by filing a lawsuit first and then obtaining the judgment by winning the suit. The creditor plaintiff in the lawsuit is required to have you "served" with a copy of the summons and complaint for the lawsuit. The "writ of garnishment" will actually show the caption of the lawsuit and the case number....

    I agree with Kevin. As an Clark County, Washington attorney representing HOAs with respect to enforcing the CCRs against properties subject to the CCRs, assuming you are dealing with the standard variety of CCRs and no HOA in place, you will have to sue to obtain an injunction to force your neighbor from violating the no parking provision, and as with most CCRs, the prevailing party will be able to recover its attorney's fees and costs in the action. That being said, keep in mind that being...

    In Washington, the statute of limitations for a breach of contract based on a oral contract (i.e. nothing in writing) is 3 years from the date of the breach (i.e. the date the money was due to be paid). If its a writen contract, then the statute of limitations is 6 years from the date of breach. Depending on what you have in "writing" it could meet the minimum requirements for a written contract, or it may not, but at the very least, it could be deemed as an admission that money is owed. To...

    That is a question you have to ask your lawyer or seek a second opinion from another lawyer to review the actions of your current lawyer. There may be a reason why he or she hasn't filed an answer to the amended complaint but again, there is no way of knowing in light of the information you have provided. Please note: this answer is provided for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon without first meeting and consulting with a licensed attorney practicing in your...
