We are a general contractor. We did some tile work on a home. The tile cracked and the home owner was unhappy. We told them we would fix the issue and purchased material and make an appointment to go to the home. The day before the work was to be done, the home owner said they were going out of town. So the work was put off.
Then we found out they filed a complaint against our company. They still owe us $8,500 and their job is considered complete. We gave them time to pay us the $ because we tried to be amicable. Now we want our money and the 90 days have lapsed since a worker set foot on the property, however, we had previously made plans and purchased material to do work.
Can we still file a lien? We made efforts to settle the matter amicably to no avail.
