We were a subcontractor on a project for which the GC has a payment bond. We have an outstanding balance and we last performed work nearly six months ago.
The Statute of Limitations is one year per 42 Pa. Cons. Stat. Ann section 5523(3), but the terms of the actual payment bond may provide otherwise. If you did not have a contract with the lead/prime general contractor, you would need to provide 90 days' notice per 8 P.S. section 194(b). If you have not already, you should consider pursuing relief through CASPA. That statute provides that unpaid subcontractors can recover attorneys' fees and interest on improperly withheld sums. You should consult a Pennsylvania attorney who understands the applicable law and knows how to get contractors paid.
