And sure got it reading my email this morning.

As most know, i'm pushing some retarded hours making up for getting the shaft from 2 general contractors last year.
Friday when things were looking great for me time wise on this currant project, I start having that "nagging pain" in a tooth I broke a year ago, and has not bothered me since the day I broke it. So I "man up" take a few asprines, and sopldier on!!

welllll

Monday morning I wake up and my face is swollen, head to dentist ,(tooth comes out on the 20th after the infection is gone) had a HORRIBLE week trying to work, and wearing my sanding mask Wednesday and Thursday for 5 hours certianly didn't do me any favors.

Last September I statrted a huge house for a private home builder/ tattoo shop owner / full time town cop / wannabe contractor (found out how multi tallented he thought he was after I started, by then it was too late)

Make a long story short, stiffs me for about $8000.00 after lieing his ass off, and ducking my invoices..
Work was started 10 months ago, I put a lien on the property almost 6 months ago, and have herad NO responce what so ever since the day I liened the property.
.
Now looks like this tool finally finished the house off, and his client is expecting to move in
Now his laywer is giveing me 4 days to consider a $2000.00 settelment.

Took me almost 5 mins before I could stop laughing hard enough to catch me breath!

God I needed that this morning.ROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFLROFL

I'm at Panda Express and this teenaged girl brought her younger sibs. This girl is georgeous,showing lots of skin,but its obvious she's only about 16 or 17. I know it would be bad to fuck her. Is it reeeeaaally that bad to just WANT to fuck her? I mean, its not an action.

Doesn't sound like there's any reason to accept a dime less than the 8K you're owed. Fuck him and his lawyer. Good luck, O-H.

No shit? I would keep the lien on the house until you are paid in full including interest. Explain to the ambulance chaser that you're not a fucking bank, his math needs work and that he can kiss your nuts.

I'm thinking the reason they're trying to communicate is that they'll drag it through court. For a lot of people that is reason enough.

So yeah, he can't officially sell the house until the lien is gone, right? Sounds like that guy is gotten by the balls.

But he can't sell the house as long as O-H has the lien on it.

Assuming the laws in Canada are the same as they are here.

He has to get an audience with the Queen and request the sale of the house as a first step. That should create some timing issues.

Good luck, OH - my son is in the biz and there is NOTHING worse than some lying bastard stiffing you for hard labour.

OH - is a contractor's lien executable?

My understanding was that technically the house could be sold, but it would be sold subject to the lien and upon sale, you can essentially foreclose on the home. At that point, you're the SR lienholder, you get your lien paid off (and probably atty fees) and the person that purchased the home is left really upset that they didn't get title insurance.

That's why you run title checks. If a house couldn't be sold with a lien on it still, the title check wouldn't be necessary (as you know, by nature of the house being sold, that the title is clean).

Or I could be a fuckwit...both are equally likely I suppose.

He can sell it put the money in escrow and wait out overhead

just tell him you have a rich uncle in south africa, and that if the builder sends him $100,000 dollars, he guarantees to double his money, and then really stick it too him. Seriously though, my dad owns his own construction company as well, and if theirs a lein on the house, its my understanding that it can't be sold, whether that holds true in canada or not......?

Yeah, but I think O-H can wait longer on 8K than the other guy can on whatever he sells the house for.

An assumption on my part.

Basically yes, pay the court in trust, let the hojme owners have it, then wait me out.
Problem is, i'm already out the $$$ for almost a year, so waiting doesnt bother me much other than pissing me off that the "Legal system" sides more with the "Screwer" than the "Screwiee".
It really don't cost me anything to wait, meanwhile even though he wont pay me, he STILL has to pay someone if he wants to close that house..
. And comming up with that kind of coin is gonna be mighty hard for this peice of work when he can't afford to pay his crew on a good week.

dunno about Canada, but in the US you could also notify the IRS that he benefited by the $8,000 in work he stiffed you and let them go after him for unpaid taxes on it. I've heard that gets people motivated to settle up.

Well tell him if he don't pay you you'll sue him for the money owed plus lawyer fee.
