How do I process an unconditional waiver for a joint check?

8 months ago

We received a copy of the supplier invoice billed to the sub, sub billed us the same amount to cover the supplier. Both names listed on one unconditional, do I mail only to the sub? Or do I mail each a copy?

Ideally you will have both the supplier and the sub execute the unconditional waiver once your joint check has cleared. Before making the joint check you should also try and get conditional waivers from both of them. Your contractual obligations are with your sub. But the waivers are about managing the lien/stop payment/bond claim rights both the sub and the material supplier may have.
