Question: My husband and I are building a home in Grand Beach, MI. We have terminated our business relationship with the first general contractor because of poor workmanship, and then discovered he had not paid the subcontractors. Is it a difficult or complicated process to file with the Homeowner Construction Lien Recovery Fund under the Michigan Construction Lien Act?
Answer: Thank you for your note. It is not that difficult to file a claim with the Homeowner Construction Lien Recovery Fund under the Michigan Construction Lien Act. However, there are some pitfalls that can be encountered. You may also wish to call the local police department and file a claim for fraud. Our firm handles many construction disputes, if we can be of assistance; please do not hesitate to call. Grand Beach is just at the south end of Berrien County and the court house is just down the street if necessary. Good luck.
