Can i legally put a lien on the house

Asked 7 months ago - Mccomb, MS

i am renting a house, and a tree from a nieghbor's property fell and caused serious damage to the roof causing the house to be unlivable; niether party has insurance, I do handyman and repair services for residential property; the home owner is beginning to show signs of not fixing the house. I have been put out of my home for over two months; due to the suffering this problem has caused me, is it legal for me to use my own money and fix the home and request the deed of the house for payment?
