No results matched your search for In SC, can a contractor put a lien on a home where he performed work but was unfinished...over budget and work was paused and money was generally agreed as being even? We have also had two estimates conducted to complete the work. The completion is estimated to cost 3000 to 6000....and several parts of the work does not meet code and must be redone
