A contractor did a terrible job and caused damage to our property. He filed a lien and we took him to court & Won our case. The judge dismissed the lien. Now the contractor has refiled the same lien for the same amount. Is that legal to file an extention of lien when it was already dismissed?
No, it is not proper to put the same lien on again if the lien was dismissed on the merits by the Court. In fact, it could be considered defamation against title. You should consult an attorney who knows New York's Mechanic's Lien law.
