Does this contract language waive my right to lien? "Subcontractor expressly agrees that payment by the owner to the contractor for any work performed by the subcontractor is an express CONDITION PRECEDENT to any payment by the Contractor to the Subcontractor and that the Contractor is under no obligation to make any partial or final payments to the Subcontractor, as provided in paragraph 2, until and unless the Contractor is paid by the Owner. Subcontractor agrees to accept the risk that he will not be paid for work performed by him in the event the Contractor, for whatever reason, is not paid by the Owner for such work. Subcontractor further agrees that the liability of the surety on Contractor's payment bond, if any, for payment to the Subcontractor is subject to the same conditions precedent as are applicable to the Contractor's liability for payment to the Subcontractor."...Read More

I advanced contractor $1,500 for work and materials. He is billing me for materials and refuses to give me itemized receipts from Home Depot. I believe his amounts are fraudulent and refuses to share actual receipts as he promised to do. He told me my invoice from him is the amount I owe him. Feel I was over charged $500. He started a drywall project he said he cannot complete. He dropped off a check drawn on an inactive company in Florida for only $181.00 with a note on the back of the check,”cashing this ck concludes all business”. How do I demand these two receipts? I have asked him twice for the receipts and he told me he cant give me something he does not have. I checked with Home Depot and they told me that they can print copies of receipts within 180 days. I verified and confirmed with another contractor and he agreed with me that I was overcharged approximately $600. How do I proceed to get receipts and honesty from this person? I am a single, senior citizen homeowner trying to complete a renovation in my family room due to water damage. Please advise. Dont think he is licensed in CT....Read More

Our contractor completed work on our home on January 28th, 2020 for a project that began in March 2019. The relationship was not a good one & many mistakes were made that we asked him to correct (ordering incorrect shingles, siding cut with gaps, ordering & installing the wrong windows & sink are just a few examples). As the relationship got worse, he started threatening my partner with a lien on our home. She was pressured into signing off on two walls (that I wanted redone) & approving a final payment after enduring verbal abuse from the contractor & his foreman. She simply wanted the contractor & his foreman out of our home, as communication had become so hostile. The contractor & all subcontractors were paid in full at the end of January 2020. Here nearly a year later, there are items we have had to call the contractor back to fix (his work has a one year warranty). While he did respond & is addressing some of the issues, he is once again using the threat of a lien to get my partner to agree to let repairs go. My question is this: I know he had 90 days from the January 28th, 2020 to file a lien for the original work done, but does he have the right to file a lien now? Here a full year past when the work was completed, he is saying there was a "side contract" that we had with him that was "unpaid" & that if we write a negative review of his company, he will put a lien on our home. How can we fight back against this?...Read More
