Default update

I sent him a certified, return recipt letter restating my position & requesting payment one more time prior to proceeding with legal action & the lein on his home. He sent one back restating his only now he has fabricated some imaginary 2nd phone call when supposedly I told him "no worries, the weeds were under control" into his side of the story. He goes on to state that he'll counter sue for his labor time should I take his dumb righteous *** to court.

This guy is such a jerk I'm taking it all the way just on principal.

Phil,

What is your view on the pros and cons to putting a lien on a property vs going to small claims court?

I was told it only costs $10 to file the lien. I checked at the local county building.

But as far as I know, you only get paid from a lien, when the property is sold. Is that correct?

Yeah, the lein would have to be satisfied prior to any sale of, or refinancing of the house, but if the guy just owned the home & keeps it for 20 years you'd better not be holding your breath. That's why small claims court is better in this case, you get an immediate judgement, If you win they are court ordered to pay, failing to do so is breaking the law.
