Trouble with Regional - Filed Lien
I have been doing this work since the start of the year. One of the 1st companies that started giving me work was Country Preservation and later to call itself The Preservation Solution (for P&P/REO work and Grassmania for grass cuts). I did several good size jobs for them but then I noticed they started having an issue with paying (only to always say they were waiting on the client to pay). I live in Texas so researched my rights as far as placing liens on the properties. Luckily the 3 big ones I was still within the legal window to do so. I have since filed liens on 3 properties (one was for REO work and 2 other properties were for evictions). Once the liens were filed I did hear from the service company and they confirmed that Country Preservation had been paid. I am now a month into this so the next step was to send a Letter of Intent to Foreclose (I know the irony here, foreclosing on bank owned homes). I really hope it does not come to that or I will be having to spend more money on attorneys and legal fees.
For reference for anyone if needing to file a Lien, zlien.com is a great site to visit.
To help anyone that I can I would be very Leary of the Country Preservation/The Preservation Solution/Grassmania group. The main guy is Bill Garlock but with many partners. They have all gotten together to obtain clients (MSI, MCS, Five Brothers, First Allegiance, and the list goes on). So now that all the partners have different contractors around the country they can expand there territory. I am not saying this is a bad idea. But what I am saying is I am owed lots of money and so are other contractors.
