A contractor has put a mechanics lien on your house the work is unfinished and there is no signed contract what are your options?

First, if the contractor is licensed, he can file a lien against your house under the doctrine of quantum meruit (Google it for more info). Although the work is unfinished, the contractor is nevertheless entitled to be compensated for the work he has done. However, you must now find a contractor to finish the job. You will then be entitled to the cost of finding the new contractor (if this has caused you money damages). Remember that (in WA) a lien will expire in 8 mos.--the contractor must sue you during this period or the lien expires. I suggest you simply find another contractor--if the original one sues over the lien, you should then counterclaim. In such a case, talk to a construction law attorney.

Yes and no. The contractor can file a lien against your house for non-payment.
