Our Company has been awarded a contract. In the payment section, it states that the General Contractor has absolutely no obligation to pay us if the Owner does not pay them. What is your opinion on this language? We are thinking of asking the GC to retract that line before signing the contract. What would be the best way to say this, is there specific language we should use when asking them to remove that sentence?...Read More

OhioConstruction Contract
Hello, my husband works for a company in Ohio that cleans large HVAC systems for large businesses and government buildings. Allot of there jobs are government contracts. When he asks leadership about prevailing wages when they work government buildings there answer is always they didn't put it in the bid and that's why they got the job. Which I thought was not legal. He recently started a job for the Ross county correctional institution and was told he would be getting prevailing wage since it's again a government job. However today on his paycheck he has his normal rate under the prevailing wage hours. When he asked about this to his boss he was told that they had to list it that way to separate the hours but that the prevailing wages are less then his hourly wage. But when I looked that information up everything I'm finding says something completely different and that the actual prevailing wages are anywhere from $8 to $15 dollars more an hour on top of his hourly rate. We are at a complete loss and don't know what we can do to get the correct information or how we can make this right. I'm hoping you can help lead us in the right direction and tell me if this is something that's legit or are they doing something illegal. Thank you...Read More

I am a homeowner who signed a contract for a company to do siding but the contractor was super unprofessional and I decided to go with a more affordable company instead so I told them I do not want to move forward. He is threatening me about putting a lien on my house but nothing has been done. No money has been exchanged, no materials have been ordered. I just simply singed an agreement to the work....Read More

I have also maintained one 3 houses down from mine since the ladt died and no one came to clear out the house. What can I do to file a lein on the abandoned property for all my ongoing work on the property? How do I first dile a proper lein... and then How do I foreclose on the property? Steps, parties to be notified, filings/procedures? How long do I have to wait to foreclose on the property? What are the steps to take and what papers are needed? I asked the prosecutor at the Montgomery County , Dayton Ohio and the asst. told me I have to notify them...? How do I do this? Unfortunately... I have not one dime to give to an attorney with all I am paying on my home and the next door property and the one 4 houses down. I have to do this to protect the value of my home in the neighborhood.

I have to patch it up... or my property value will plummet ! Please help me! ...Read More

I was a tenant with a lease with the option to buy contract with the original owner of a property which was sold to a 3rd party at a franklin County Ohio sheriff sale without my knowledge after I had completed renovations of the property. I filed liens against the original owner, the foreclosing bank, and the 3rd party sheriff sale buyer. I was sued by the 3rd party buyer for fraud, based on the standard language/statement on the lien affidavit that I had a contract with the 3rd party. I lost on the summary judgement pleadings, on the fraud claim. Should I appeal the ruling? ...Read More

I have a contractor who has drug his feet on a home improvement job. He continued to change the date of completion. He has been paid half so far. We now want to be finished with him. We had to hire someone to finish some drywall and ceiling work. The total due for completion was $17,510. He wanted 90%, $15,500, and then the rest of the money when he came back to finish. We proposed to pay $15,000 (minus $500 for drywall/ceiling). Are we responsible to pay for work that is not complete if we don't have him come back?...Read More
