I have been doing freelance work for a company. I have a full-time job, and I do freelance graphic design work on the side. I signed a new contract with a design company in October, 2019 to do work on an hourly basis, as needed. In their contract, it says this for payment. "FEE. For services to be rendered under this Agreement, Contractor shall be entitled to a fee according to the fee schedule set forth on Exhibit "A" which is attached hereto and made a part hereof. Said fee schedule may be amended from time to time by KSA&D sending notice of such amendment to Contractor at the address of Contractor set forth in Section 12 below and Contractor agrees to accept such amendment unless Contractor notifies KSA&D in writing within three (3) days after receipt of such amendment. All such amendments shall be effective immediately upon receipt unless otherwise noted by KSA&D or objected to by Contractor. Said fees shall be payable in monthly installments for services rendered in the prior month. Contractor shall submit invoices for all fees due under this Agreement." I started work the first week of November and sent an invoice in December. I then did more work in December and sent another invoice in January. I have not received any form of payment thus far and they keep saying they will send it, but they never do. It is now February, and they have not paid me for November yet. I haven't received one cent. My outstanding invoices for them total $1575.00 What can I do? Can I charge interest? How much? If I have to go to court, will I most likely win? I kept all correspondence from them and there have been no issues mentioned, so I know that my work is fine. I followed up repeatedly to make sure they had everything from me, and to get their input. They are just screwing me around with payment....Read More

Our company has a contract with a homeowner is Pennsylvania and we ordered custom materials for her project. She placed a 10% deposit down upon signing the contract and we ordered the materials. Months later she now wants to cancel the project and forfeit her deposit. Our custom materials and expenses exceed the deposit and we would like to place a lien on the property. I know we can do this for custom materials for a project in other states (without it being installed on the property), in Pennsylvania are we able to place a lien for custom materials? ...Read More

PennsylvaniaConstruction Contract
Greetings, On a small construction project, whose scope of work was demolition, a piece of equipment was removed, which apparently shouldn't have been. We are a subcontractor on the project, and the GC stated that our organization is finanicially responsible for the cost of the piece of equipment. It could be argued that we weren't informed NOT to remove said item, but that is besides the point. When we requested payment, the GC stated that the project Owner would "let the cost of the controller (piece of equipment" go away," but instead wants a whole new system of equipment installed. The GC then said the cost for this whole new system of equipment, rather than just one piece of destroyed equipment, exceeds our small contract value. The GC then asked us to revise the original contract value because we will not need to return to finish the project until later this summer. Long story short, are we responsible for eating the cost of a whole new system? And also, it seems as if the GC is trying to get out of paying us anything (they've paid nothing to date), by then asking us to revise the original contract sum. I would appreciate any insight, and I apologize for the vagueness of my question; I've tried to use only generalities for the purposes of anonymity. ...Read More

I am a contractor who was engaged in a renovation project, Due to circumstances I was not able to be on premises daily. The customer was aware of this. She had let me go in December even after informing her that we would be there to complete the job. She had even mentioned due to the fact that she got another contractor to complete some of the tasks, she offered alternative tasks. She did give us a deposit, she did supply most of the materials when needed, however there were materials needed to complete tasks that were not present. We had offered to giver back more than half of the deposit, she never allowed me the opportunity to present the amount before she filed in small claims court. She is also trying to triple the amount to be paid to her. What am I to do? Do you have any insight. ...Read More
