What is the name of your state? Georgia,
I need to know how long a person has to take you to court after a lien has been put on your house? Our builder had a lien out on our house a year ago and still has not taken any action against us. This builder walked out on the job and left us with a half-built house. We had to borrow more money on the construction loan to get it finished. A few months later, the builder came back and said that we owed him money! We do not owe him anything. However, he put a lien on our house and we had to get a bond to override the lien. That has been a year ago. We sold the house we were living in before we finished this house and we were not able to get any of the money from the sale of the house because of the lien! The bank has it in an account for us until all this mess is settled, but when will it be settled? The lawyer we have is crappy and never returns our calls!!! We need help! We can't afford to pay another lawyer. We need that money from the bank. What can we do?????
