We were hired by a GC to do work on a state owned property. On August 28 we received a down payment and began work. We completed one of two stairwells. The general contractor terminated the contract and refused to pay. We sent the final invoice after work was completed on September 8. Originally I was told that in the state of Texas I was not required to send a preliminary notice but it was just brought to my attention that because it is a state owned property that I was required to send one and have potentially missed the deadline to so. I’m trying to confirm whether or not that is correct and if so if I am still able to proceed by sending a notice or what my next step would be . They also failed to provide the surety bond information so that presents a whole other situation ????PLEASE HELP. If not already, I’m running out of time.
