It depends on how much time you give them in your contract. Read the contract. It should have a completion date in it somewhere. If not, then they might just take their sweet old time.

Can a contractor place a lien on your property if the work failed to repair the problem and the contractor inflated the bill?

Sure and the contractor will file if you refuse to pay as long as your local statutory requirements are met and if the contractor thinks it did a good job and didn't breach the contract - but then it sounds as though you have at least two defenses: breach of contract for bad work (assuming the contract called for a level of work that this fell below) and excess billing (assuming the contract was for a specific amount and/or did not allow for additional charges due to unforeseen circumstances and you may have been at least told additional work was required). A lot will depend on the words in the contract.

What to do when a contractor does not want to pay a sub contractor?

Are you the contractor, the subcontractor, or the person who hired the contractor in the first place? If you're the person who hired the general contractor, you don't have to do anything - this is between the general contractor and the subcontractor. As long as you pay the contractor the agreed-upon price, you can wash your hands of the matter. If you're the subcontractor, and the general contractor who hired you is not paying what he owes, you can sue him for breach of contract. If you are the general contractor, you better have a really good reason for not paying the subcontractor (the subcontractor materially breached its contract with you, for example).
