Are the owners responsible to pay subcontractors if the general contractor has not paid them in the state of NC?

North CarolinaPrompt Payment

Hi, Who is responsible to pay subcontractors if the general contractor has not paid them? I have a sunroom project that I am getting done through a contractor. Also, we have paid in full for the sunroom project. We recently came to know through a friend that they received a bill directly from the subcontractor since the contractor has not paid them. How can I avoid this situation, we live in NC? We are still in the process of completing our sunroom project and do not want to get any suprises. Also, we came to know recently that the contractor we hired is unlicensed. P.s. - The subcontractor for electrical was initially someone else but since that guy left the project, our contractor got a new subcontractor to finish the electrical. Thanks, Lakshmi
