I think you have to take him to court, not just file a lien.
Good luck.

You can only file a lien for work performed. You would have to have obtained a second mortgage for the amount owed. Your only recourse is small claims court. With a verbal contract, it will be very difficult.

Judgment Liens on Property in Texas | Nolo.com

According to this, you have to sue him first.

P.S. I am not a lawyer.

P.P.S. Google.

P.P.P.S. Good luck enforcing it.

P.P.P.P.S. When I discovered there was an old mechanic's lien on my property from a subcontractor who was not paid by my general contractor (and who had won a court case against the GC), a lot of Googling revealed that the lien was totally invalid. I still had to pay a lawyer to make it go away, but that subcontractor never got paid. I sure as hell wasn't going to pay him twice. The point: lawyer. Lawyer, lawyer, lawyer.
