I am trying to bill the GC for materials before they are on site. The agreement with our manufactures is that we have 30 days to pay for that material and we have a 25k line of credit. The issue I receive from the GC is that they do not want to pay for material until it is onsite or until it is installed. The product we sell is custom and we have a pretty quick turn around on installation. The GC will state that they are not a "bank" which I'm not either. :/ How do get on the same page with them and be reasonable, as once the materials arrive onsite then they pay 30-90 days later which is past my MFG's timeline. Just as an example I can not fund 10 plus projects each month on my own if the materials cost 10K each and each of them pay at their own rate at a different pace....Read More

I am a self employed sub contractor of entertainment (musical) performances at nursing homes in the States of CT and RI. My issue is in reference to one my CT based clients, for which I do programs at 5 of their facilities in both CT and RI. I know that I am not the only entertainer that is having issues in collecting. I have a date going back to April 2019 and a different facility for June 2019. The rest are monthly performances beginning with September 2019. They are now 6 months is arrears. The email address on their website is incorrect. I did obtain an email address to which I sent a respectful letter several weeks ago, with no response. This site appears to pertain only to Construction job, is that correct or does it also apply to other vendor situations? Thank you for your time and any information or direction you can provide. Sincerely, Judy Hall Gray, Hope Valley, RI...Read More

Hi , I am wondering if i have to add in a price on the Prelimiary Liens . We are sub contractors and the contractors that hire us usually mark up our costs to thewir clients. So when we add in their cost, it may show their clients the mark-up the contracters will be receiving. I am, trying to avoid this and wondering if i need to add in a price at all. OR can i send the G. C a preliminiary notice seperate with our contracted amount and then send it to the owners with no contracted amount? Please let me know ! We ae based in Cali if that helps!...Read More

CaliforniaPreliminary Notice
I hired a company to do a job and they didn’t correct materials. I have not paid in full. I told them they needed to correct it. They said they would correct it in a text but now they are not wanting to fix it to my satisfaction. They came up with a cheaper way for them to fix and that’s all they are willing to do. But now they want payment like their job is complete. What can I do? ...Read More

PennsylvaniaPrevailing Wages
I was hired by John Gehm from RG NATIONAL LLC base on Missouri, I was hired to work in some universities in Tallahassee Fl, Gainesville Fl, Miami Florida, Minneapolis, Chicago and Pittsburgh. After the jobs were done, he sent me a lien waiver to fill out and have it notarized and sent back. the lien waiver says that that paperwork needs to be sent out in other to get paid in the following week it's been more than 3 weeks and he is not answering my calls now he said he will sue me for lien fraud if I try to do something against the properties. he does have a few lien waivers but not all of them i was wondering if i can do something with the liens that he actually has like voiding them or something or go after him since he told me straight up that he wasn't paying me. I have timesheets, lien waivers, text, emails, check stubs, copy of checks that were cashed out of my account invoices etc. Please I need help with this situation. MY PHONE NUMBER IS 720-487-2590 if someone can give me a call i will higly appreciate it. seems like there's more people struggling with this guy as well help me to help please....Read More
