The question is not quite clear, however, I will try to provide an answer. I am assuming that you are the renter and you contracted with an unscrupulous contractor. Since the contract is between you and the contractor, you will not be able to lien the property to get your money back as the landlord was not part of the contract. There may be restrictions in your rental agreement that prevents any modifications to the property without the landlords consent. Provided that you have proof of payment and a formal written agreement, you may need to go to small claims court. In California, contractors are not allowed to take deposits over 10% or $1000 dollars, whichever is less. Depending upon how much you gave them as a down payment, there may be a legal violation that can be addressed also, depending upon the laws in your state.
Yes and no. The contractor can file a lien against your house for non-payment. Even if you honestly don't owe the contractor any money, he may still lien your house; he will eventually have to prove the lien's validity in court or it is automatically released. No lien can be filed against your car. However, if the contractor gets a judgment against you, that judgment may be executed against your car and home to secure payment.
Hiring a landscape contractor is a waste of money.
Landlord insurance is an insurance for landlords for there property. Yes , it is important to have because it could potentially save you a lot of money.
When you rent an apartment, landlords usually ask for a security deposit equal to a month's rent. Renters can potentially cause all sorts of problems for landlords, they can damage the property that they rent, they can refuse to pay their rent, etc. This way landlords have at least some ability to penalize a tenant who causes these kinds of problems, by refusing to return the security deposit (in part or in full).
Hand deliver check, cash, money order and etc what ever your local tax property office will accept as a payment and give you a receipt for or you could mail the payment to the correct mailing address.
Hi, Contractor is a person that get work for some money.
It depends. if they are sueing you for non payment and its ur fault then yes. but if the insurance company holds the money and th contractors sign a waiver lien then no. they do that just to intimidate you.
Not much. Your insurer provides funds for a covered loss. You choose your contractor that you want to do the work. It is the homeowners responsibility to hire a reputable (preferably insured) contractor to perform the repairs.
They went to the landlords when they had no money during the famine
Landlords own and rent out properties to other people. The responsibility of the landlord is to maintain the property and ensure local building codes are maintained for the safety and welfare of the renters. The cost of maintenance related to rental properties can vary depending on many factors. It is very possible the landlord is unable or unwilling to spend the money necessary to properly maintain the property. In this case the continued deterioration of the property allows it to become a "slum". When the income produced by the rental property is insufficient to support the maintenance of the property this commonly results in the condition above.
Then the landlords mortgage will go into default and if he/she continues to not pay the mortgage the property will be foreclosed on, and yes, you will be left in on the street. there is nothing that says (unless it is in specifically in your rental agreement) what your land lord has to do with the money.
Depending on the subcontractor, a written proposal for the work is accepted, and once done, an invoice is sent for payment. The contractor typically has a construction loan that these bills are paid from. The bank will inspect the work to be sure it meets specs and permits and then release the money for payment.
No. The contractor must sue the tenant for the money due.
Was this a total loss? The money should go to the contractor unless you have already paid him out of pocket then the money would go to you...re-imburse you only what it cost to rebuild home and only what you paid the contractor. The mortgage company pays the contractors directly to be sure that they are paid in full and not mechanics liens are on the property. Provide proof of paid in full acknowledged by the contractor and the company will then release the check to you.
Getting the money back from a contractor that did not do the job will probably be a challenge in many cases. You can ask for the money back. If they wont give you the money back, you may have to file a civil suit in the courts.
Of course not. A loan is not a payment, but rather an entrusting of another person with your property (or money), expecting it to be returned. Rent is simply a payment in exchange for possession of something for some defined period, and it will not be returned. Similarly, a security deposit for renting property is not a loan and is not rent: it remains the property of the tenant, but is held by the landlord until the tenancy is discharged.
In a simple mortgage,the mortgagor without delivering possession of the mortgaged property binds himself personally to pay the mortgage money and agrees expressly or impliedly that if he fails to pay the debt and interest in terms of the mortgaged deed, the property will be sold and the proceeds applied in payment to the mortgaged money.In an English mortgage,a mortgagor binds himself to repay the mortgaged money on certain date and transfers the mortgaged property absolutely to the mortgagee subject to the provision that he will re-transfer it to the mortgagor upon payment of the mortgaged money as agreed.
Money is a form of payment
The problem is the Contractor hasn't paid someone, such as if it were a roofer and he owes his supplier money for materials he purchased for the work done on your home. I've dealt with a similar situation, to where my business supplied labor to a janitorial company that provided service at a university. We were forced to file liens against the university in order to receive payment. Make sure that your contractor is in good standing with his suppliers. It's not offensive to a responsible contractor to ask questions as "Who is your supplier?".
