I hired a painter to paint home interior. I received 53 complaints from potential buyers about the paint. I asked realtor to send photos since I had moved already for work. I forwarded pictures of subpar or unfinished work to painter and asked if he could go fix and/or finish. He refused, threatened to harm my family, threatened to go damage the property, and put a contract lien on the home. The bid was for $2800 to be paid at closing. I was going to pay less than that but still pay for the work that he did do. With this lien it sounds like we can’t close until he’s paid in full. I feel I’m getting shafted and don’t think I should pay full price for half a job. Should I fight this or is it even worth my time.
