I want to make final payment once we know the punch list has been completed to our satisfaction?

South CarolinaLien Waivers

I have a punch list of 4-5 items to be completed to our satisfaction, I.e., cracks in wall (3), dishwasher not fully framed in and you can see into top of dishwasher ( contractor said pay us and will come back and trim it?), ceiling has 4/9 sprinkler heads with cracks and uneven marking around 4 rims (eye sore’, bowed wall byHVAC, front door key latch needs to be moved so outside hallway light doesn’t show through into condo, HVAC., missing about $600 of floor tile and door hinges from villa (contractor said he would investigate), no response? Contractor stopped sending emails in July. Only communicates via email and no follow up photo’s. COVID has kept us from SC age and health concerns. Legal advance shared 4 months ago, require the GC to complete the punch list before final payment ( paying the final brill and trying get the project completed would require more time). SC contractors have not been reliable and difficult to find qualified people to complete a project. If the GC files a lien without providing proof of completion? What is our options to resolve to our satisfaction. The permit understated the cost by $20,000, did not include HVAC work, and did not have the fire department inspect the sprinklers required once installed (GC didn’t have a full understanding on rules for condos when sprinklers needed to be updated). Please advise corrective action.
