I have a plumber that I use on a regular basis. He had done some work on one of my rental properties and I paid him for the job. He did something wrong and this resulted in an emergency situation. He agreed that it was his fault and because he would not be able to handle the emergency, he said he would send another plumber over there and take care of paying him. Long story short, this second plumber did the work and sent the bill to my plumber who has not paid it. The second plumber contacted me and we have both been trying to get my plumber to pay up. He keeps giving us the runaround. The second plumber said his only recourse was to file a lien against my property. I suggested that he file a small claims case against my plumber instead. Can he legally file a lien against me?
