How can I have an unfair lien removed/dismissed from my house?
I had an Estimator from a well known roofing company in Fl. come to my house to quote me a price on a re-roof. I signed a contract to have my roof replaced. The job on my roof began. During this time, the roofing company (employer)let go off the Estimator (employee). Recently, the Estimator contacted me to inform me that the roofing company had not payed him for his job and therefore, he had no other recourse but to place a lien on my house. He stated that this would force his former employer, the roofing company, to pay him what they owed him. I now have a lien on my house and the roofing company is not responding to me nor taking any action to help me. I am shocked that an Estimator can place a lien on my house to claim money due not by me, but by his former employer, the roofing company. I now fear that I will need to encumber legal costs to dismiss a lien that has nothing to do with me but rather, an employer-employee issue. How can I have this unfair lien removed?

You need to talk to an attorney/solicitor.

If none of the people involved will work with you, a lawsuit is the only real thing you can do. Have you considered paying off the Estimator and suing the roofing company in small claims? Check your contract with the roofing company. Call the Better Business Bureau.
