I need to know if my situation is right for a Mechanic's Lien or if a Funds Lien would be better. I was a supervisor for a sub-contractor building a solar farm for Georgia Power and was promised certain compensations from my previous employer and have yet to receive those monies after my termination from this job. I have email and text messages laying out the terms of our agreement, but no formal paperwork. Very small company (4 employees). I want to be sure I have the proper grounds and documentation to move forward. The job was in GA but the project is on-going. I am still in the 90 day window.
Consult an attorney about filing a materialman's lien on the property. The lien notice must be filed in the county where the work was performed, and the notice of the lien must be sent to the contractor via certified mail/return receipt requested. You then have a deadline after filing the initial lien notice to file suit to foreclose the lien. The lien must be for work you performed in connection with construction of improvements to the property.
