Los Angeles - Jennifer Aniston is being sued by a contractor.

J.R. Darnall Associates Inc. has filed a lawsuit against the We're the Millers actress, claiming she never paid for a $43 710(R437 000) deck that was installed at her $21m (R210m) mansion in Bel Air, Los Angeles, earlier this year.

According to court documents filed at Los Angeles County Superior Court, obtained by gossip website, the construction company claims it was hired to do some major renovations to the 44-year-old actress's property in October 2012 and worked on several projects at the house until March 2013.

The contractor claims there was never any problem with the work or payment until Jennifer asked them to build a deck for a party at the house on 24 March, which was completed in time.

However, the day after the party, the contractor says it was informed that the deck was leaking.

The company offered to send an expert to evaluate the damage but the actress had the deck removed before an inspection could take place.

It claims that Jennifer then cut off all communication and never paid for the deck.

A spokesperson for the actress has yet to comment on the allegations.

Jennifer bought the property in January 2012 with her fiance Justin Theroux but only moved into it recently following extensive renovations.

She hosted a star-studded bash for Justin's 42nd birthday at the house on Saturday.
