I am a subcontractor. The project we are working on has run several months past the original completion date, for various reasons, none of which have anything to do with our company. The GC keeps giving me the hours are hours speech and not recognizing I have additional costs related to these project delays. Instead of 20 guys working we only have 5, but have other costs involved. Including: Multiple rental equipment, fuel, overhead and housing. What notice do I need to send to properly notify the GC of the increased project costs? There is nothing stated in the contract agreement for additional costs requests....Read More

KentuckyPreliminary Notice
Hello - your summary of Kentucky retainage law seems to indicate that there is no escrow requirement. KRS 371.160 seems (for larger projects) to indicate otherwise. Is KRS 371.160 inapplicable? If so, why? Thank you....Read More

I’m a project manager who’s company GCed a multi million dollar residential project for a cousin. Originally my brother started the project with his own company. He didn’t submit a bid to receive a deposit, and spent 45k of his own money before submitting an invoice (which I did for him). Both parties wanted me apart of the multi-million dollar project so I formed an LLC with my brother. The customer wanted to do time and material so I told them both I need 2500 a week, 22% for our company payroll and 15% from any subcontractors he preferred working under our license. We end up with a verbal agreement( big regret) for him to pay my company 15% of the cost as he sales each building. The sum was projected sales was around six million dollars. My business partner (brother) and myself would be paid 1500 a week a piece as an advance. 5-6 months into the project the PoS customer decided he’s not selling the property. I reminded him that since he’s not selling and he wants to turn his project into a Time and Materials job what the cost will be and that I needed receipts from all subs working under our license. I asked one of the foremen from one of the subcontractors, that I developed a relationship with, to forward me one of their approved bids only to be told, a few days later, that the customer didn’t want me to have that information. I confronted my relative with this information only to be hit with another lie saying he didn’t say that and he would forward me what I needed. I left a short time later after we couldn’t reach an agreement after he refused to forward receipts. I have all the information related to what I’m owed in personal wages and 22% from our company but since he never turned over a receipt/ approved bid how do I go about putting a dollar amount of what I’m owed? ...Read More

We have a commercial job that we completed work on in TX in September or October. The contractor that we were a supplier for has not paid the final invoice. However we did not file any statutory notice prior to beginning the job early last year. Is that strictly required in TX? Are we too late to file a lien?...Read More
