I am a materials supplier and my customer is a sub. Our part of the job is done and we have been fully paid for a few months now. The sub is asking me for an unconditional final but they want me to add the GC's name to the release. Working with Levelset Help, they are not able to add on the GC, only send the GC a copy of the release. I make a release by hand, are we putting anything at risk by adding the GC's name on the same line as our customer, the sub?...Read More

I am a homeowner who signed a contract for a company to do siding but the contractor was super unprofessional and I decided to go with a more affordable company instead so I told them I do not want to move forward. He is threatening me about putting a lien on my house but nothing has been done. No money has been exchanged, no materials have been ordered. I just simply singed an agreement to the work....Read More

I am the general contractor on a project, and the building owner made the first down payment and the second payment when we started the job, but the last payment they say they don't have the money right now but they will get it later on, according to contract it was due the day we finished, which is now 30 to 40 days Overdue, I would be OK with them making payments if I could set up some kind of payment details with a new contract, but I'm wondering how it works as far as filing a lien against the property if I make a new contract with payment details and then they make the payment or they don't make the payment as required?...Read More

Question regarding a lender in control of construction jobsite, payment app. I'm a subcontractor who works with the general contractor alot, this will be our first time together when lender is in charge of funds. I'm told I have to give the GC my receipts for all materials for job to get paid. Which that information is something you don't give out especially someone you do business with a lot; is there a way to go around that so GC isn't involved in what I pay for materials, glass and everything else. Thanks looking forward to hearing from you!...Read More

My contract was terminated by the GC due to non performance of a sub contractor I hired to complete some work on the site. Up to this point, I had not violated the terms of the sub contract agreement. They issued a termination letter and now they want me to sign a full release although I am still owed money for the work that has been completed up until the termination. The remaining balance that was left on the contract was approximately 65K and prior to being terminated, I had invoiced for 11k dollar which was left unpaid. I would like to paid for the outstanding invoice that was submitted prior to termination. Am I in a position to file a lien?...Read More
