They have an easement in the driveway because their house starts where mine ends. There is a walkway to the side of their home with no easement and they continuously... Read more »
Dear Unpaid Subcontractor: Your options for getting paid are two-fold: (A) a breach of contract claim against the General Contractor and/or (B) a mechanic's lien processing against the Homeowner. Clearly, you are not "required" to pursue the Homeowner (as intimated by the GC)...Read more »
