GLENDALE — A subcontractor for Advanced Development & Investment Inc. — an affordable housing developer under federal investigation for fraud — has filed a nearly $100,000 lien on former Glendale City Councilman John Drayman’s condo for not being paid for remodeling work.
Glendale-based company National Fire Systems & Services filed the lien on April 25 with the Los Angeles County recorder, citing Drayman’s unpaid $98,222.48 bill for the renovations, which were needed after a pipe burst and caused major flood damage.
National Fire served as the general contractor for the renovations and hired at least six other ADI subcontractors for the work completed last year. In the lien, National Fire Vice President Steve Arezoomanian states that the unpaid sum was due Jan. 17.
Neither he nor Drayman could be reached for comment Friday.
In previous interviews, Drayman has acknowledged that he chose National Fire in part because the company had agreed to let him pay over a period of months. But he said in March that he had paid for the majority of the work, except for between $10,000 and $30,000 in disputed charges with one subcontractor.
