Our contractor, who was very slow on our project (about 8 months late), left our home renovation project unfinished when we refused to pay him even more money that wasn't yet due to him according to our contract.
We just learned that he has filed a lien against us, claiming we owe HIM $35,000, when he in fact never completed the project and owes us money (we have a penalty clause with a standard AIA contract).
In order to get the lien filed within the 120 days/ 4 months, the contractor falsified the date he last worked on our project or delivered materials by at least three weeks.
We spoke with an attorney who recommended we sue the contractor but told us we should expect this to cost more than we have to pay and at least $25,000. The contractor is a liar and a perjurer. What can we do?
