Great. I'm trying to figure out something. We're a concrete service business(Sub). We mainly estimate our projects with materials and concrete costs. However, we started a project where we only did the labor work and the contractor was responsible to pay for materials and concrete cost. However, those cost went on our account with our vendors for better pricing. The problem is that they have to invoice their investors and once they get a payment they release the checks to our vendors. However, they've paid a few outstanding invoices here and there. Now they're asking for an "unconditional waiver and release on a progress payment". Should I allow our vendors to send it out? From what I've read it seems like I shouldn't. However we've gotten paid for a portion of our work but again we only billed for labor, not the material as the agreement was that they would pay for it directly, and I'm not sure how this would apply now. ...Read More

My company MS Electric, LLC licensed to perform electrical work in the state of Alabama. MS Electric, LLC also holds a subcontractors license. We completed a job Talladega Gyms and submitted to the general for final payment in order to finish paying our subcontractors and suppliers. Rather than pay my company the general contractor contacted a lawyer. One of my subcontractors and I were in a dispute over work performed. That subcontractor has subsequently filed bankruptcy. Meanwhile I’m making payments out of my personal account. Is It okay for them to do this?...Read More

We bought a house a couple of months ago and one of the things that was supposed to be repaired was the roof. The previous owner claimed she had the work done and provided receipts. Well the roof has not been repaired because when it rains around the edges of the house water is seeping through causing more damage than what was originally there. How can I proceed with this, should I contact a lawyer or do I have any remedies where this is concerned?...Read More

About half of our business walks in our store and requests same day equipment delivery. Our customers are mostly GCs. It looks like we have to send a NTO in order to secure full price lien rights. It also sounds like the owner must actually receive the notice before we furnish equipment. Is there anyway around this? Would posting an NTO in the job site board satisfy the requirement? ...Read More
