Even though you haven't billed retainage, I would consider filing a lien based on your contract balance before the lien deadline passes. We don't do this on all our contracts but certainly do on some of them where we're not feeling comfortable with things, and often we have to do this before we're allowed to bill retainage. I totally respect the comment that was made from the CFM who advised that they send notices and file liens on all their retainages if not paid before time expires.
