A property owner is asking us (the GC) to have our through dates on our own pay applications to match with our subcontractors' through dates. We've never been asked to do this before, is this standard or even allowed?

The property owner for a California development project is requiring us (the GC) to have matching through dates on all tiered waivers. We've never been asked to do this before, because subs might not be working through an entire billing period, and sometimes suppliers may be switched in the middle of a project. Is this a standard practice, or even allowable? Thank you in advance!

That's interesting. While I can't speak to whether this is standard practice, it's more than likely allowable - there's nothing preventing an owner or developer from requesting waivers to be executed this way. Granted, as you mentioned above, this could create logistical headaches when collecting waivers from down the chain parties that begin and complete performance at irregular intervals. Ultimately, whether or not aligning through dates makes sense or is logistically feasible will be up to the parties involved with the project. Explaining to the owner or developer why doing so might not be a good idea could help straighten out the waiver process for the job.
