As the article says: "Even worse, what if the allowance is too small? Does the contractor eat the difference, or will they go to the owner or project manager or additional funding? Will they be willing to pay?" This is happening to us. The sub-contractor states the allowance for temporary generators needs to be 3x greater than it is. My position is: why was there no RFI?

I'm a plumbing sub working g for a gc. 144k project. Gc gave a task to another sub and sent me a change order to subtract 18k. And other things. They have chipped away at my numbers and have not issued me change orders for things I have done at thier request. I kept working as to not violate and hold up the job. They always distract from the issue and don't want to discuss. Job is almost done. They havnt reciebed final draw from ups and I just got my final inspections. Is this the time to file lien to give me negotiating power? Should I file myself or reliance attorney? If the latter, then who? Waldorf md. My cell 2318180524. Best to initiate with a text. Thank you. ...Read More
