We as the General contractor need information on a Bond Around for a lien. How do I do a bond around if I get a lien on a project? How much would that cost? Can I get a letter of credit instead of paying for a bond around? I have a subcontractor that has not paid his trucking bills, $274k and they have sent us a Notice to lien. They intend to lien the project 2/9/17 if they are not paid. We as the General contractor do not have that much money to designate to this lien. What are my options?
