I hired a contractor to replace a concrete pad on my house and also move a portion of the fence. He has finished the concrete and told me that he would finish the fence job first thing in the morning. (Conversation was on Sunday afternoon, with him finishing the work on Monday morning). I have made many attempts to contact him and he had not responded yet. I have to usually reach out on a daily basis to get updates and timelines, but generally he responds within 12 hours. It's been almost 48 hours since I've last heard from him. I have paid for all the materials as per the quote, but he has not delivered all of the fence materials. I just want to finish the job myself or hire someone else to install the fence. ...Read More

I am a subcontractor and was working for a GC. He didn't pay me for the last 3 weeks that me and my guys worked. I had a notice of intent sent to him and the home owner from Levelset but I am not a lic. contractor and afraid I can't file a Mechanic's lien. I wanted to know what options I had to recover the $8000 he didn't pay us. Also he became racist on the text messages, referring to me as "his nigger". After that I didn't respond his was humiliating and wrong. The following is our convo from Levelset...H Ally June 29 at 11:25 AM Already Paid - I have paid Sunil Remodeling LLC, $20,500. by checks and cash. Ck # 1379, 05/28/2022 $5000. Ck# 1372, 5/24/2022 $ 4000. Ck# 1371, 5/19/2022 $ 5000. Ck# 1367, 5/5/2022 $ 5000. Cash $1500. This company needs to provide an invoice or bills for its services. Also I need the insurances ( general liability, workers comp, and disability) and DCA license for working as a home improvement contractor. Also need proof of work completed. You Deoraj Seebarran June 30 at 3:15 PM I'm curious, what gave you comfort to pay the $20,500 from 5/5/22 thru 5/28/22 but not the remaining $8,000 owed for end of May thru the 3rd week of June? Whose license was used to obtain permits with the NY DOB? As stated before, I uploaded screenshots from our text conversation. There I listed the work I have done for you, and you haven't paid me or my guys for the last 3 weeks we worked for you. You ended the conversation by calling me "your nigger". You robbed me, disrespected, and insulted me, I am willing to settle for a lower amount than the $8,000, if not, then as you suggested we will let the courts decide, all evidence will be submitted there. Racist / Racism have no place in business or in society....Read More

Greetings, i am analizing the case of credit control for the transactions of goods P2B/B2B. The problem is when a buyer request a big amount of product and the payment process is through a credit agreement. However the payment can delay and in some cases not executed so there is a complete loss. How to ensure the payment on time or at the times agreed? Also in order to keep some cashflow for further transactions for the business....Read More

I did work on this project and me and few people who worked there didn’t get paid. We found out that the owner is losing to the property to taxes in two weeks and I was wondering how I would get paid. Does the town who will own the property in two weeks pay me when the sell it or does the lien just transfer it the new owner who would buy the property from the town. ...Read More

Some of our subcontracts with contractors will specify that we will get "paid if/when paid by owner". We always strike this, but some times it's not optional. How does this effect our ability to lien?...Read More

I’m from HOME-REDI, A Contractor Builder in Long Island NY. If a client cancels an executed renovation contractor with down payment paid but work has not been started as of yet and the client now wants to cancel the contract either due to loss of job or a pandemic, is the Contractor entitled to his profit without doing any work? Thanks...Read More
