Serve a Payment Demand Letter

When it comes to preparing and filing Mechanics Lien Documents, there are really only two options that you should consider: (1) you can retain a Construction Lawyer to do it for you; or (2) you can do it on your own with proper instructions and artfully drafted “Mechanics Lien Documents” (as opposed to “fill-in-the-blanks mechanics lien forms”). We make doing either of these options easy!

What is a Payment Demand Letter?

A Payment Demand Letter is a formal demand for payment that explains how the Debtor has breached your contract by nonpayment and the steps you intend to take if payment is not immediately made.  A Payment Demand Letter is not a prerequisite to filing a Lien or filing a Lawsuit and is typically used as a means to enforce payment when you have missed your Mechanics Lien Filing Deadlines or just before filing a Lawsuit.  When done correctly, it can be an effective method to resolve the dispute without litigation.

The Construction Lawyers at Lovein | Ribman, P.C. can prepare a strong Payment Demand Letter that, depending upon your specific situation, includes the following contentions: (1) that the contract has been breached by nonpayment; (2) that Texas Property Code Chapter 28 (the “Prompt Payment Act”) has been violated by the contractor’s failure to timely release payment; (3) that interest in the amount of 18% a year is accumulating under the Prompt Payment Act and a demand for the accrued interest; (4) that Texas Property Code Chapter 162 (the “Trust Fund Statute”) has been violated by the contractor’s diversion or wrongful retention of construction funds, which imposes both civil and criminal penalties; (5) a demand for immediate payment of the principal amount owed, interest, and attorneys’ fees; and (6) that if the amount owed is not immediately paid, then you will file a Lawsuit to seek an award for the principal amount owed, accrued interest, attorneys’ fees, and costs.
