Can I ask for our reattained earnings?


Contractor had major delays on a project due to internal issues on their end (not due to any subs). They are still having delays and the job is completely stopped, but we have been ready to finish for months. They have held over $50k of retention for over 14 months now due to their delays; Do we have any rights to demand these retained earnings? Or at least a portion of it? I have read GA law, but it doesn't specify how long a contractor can hold retainage.

The answer to your question would depend, at least in part, on (1) whether your subcontract work is complete; and (2) the language of your subcontract. I would be happy to review the facts in more detail, and review your subcontract language. Please contact me for further information.
