Prepared Mechanic’s Lien

Contract DisputesAttorney: Stephen Whitmore

June 10, 2021 –  If a client fails to pay a contractor or a subcontractor, the contractor can utilize a mechanic’s lien. This means filing a legal claim against a home or other property. Filing a mechanic’s lien prevents the property owner from selling or refinancing the property until they have paid the contractor.

Our client, a licensed contractor, was putting tile up on a customer’s bathroom wall and in soap niches. Before he began working, he told his customers that anything fragile needed to be put somewhere safe. However, he was unaware that there was a shelf on the other side of the wall he was working on. Vibrations from his work caused a bottle to break.

Our client replaced the bottle. However, the opposing party refused to pay him the $3,200 he was owed from the job. Our litigation team helped the client prepare and record a mechanic’s lien. This resulted in the complete recovery of the funds due to him.

CDARA Letter/Contractor Demand

Denver Home Contractor Dispute LawyerAttorney: Stephen Whitmore

June 8, 2021 – When you hire someone to build or improve your home, sometimes things go wrong. When that happens, one available avenue of recourse is the Colorado Construction Defect Action Reform Act (CDARA). The CDARA requires that claimants follow the “Notice of Claim” process prior to filing a legal claim for construction defects. This process is intended to provide an opportunity for the construction professionals associated with the project to address the alleged construction defects and avoid litigation.

Our client contracted with a home builder to build a home that had several issues come up after closing. Our successfully assisted the woman in negotiating with the builder to agree to buy back the home.
