I work in the facilities Department of a university in Pennsylvania. Our Tenant(A deli) is having a floor installed over the existing floor. they have paid the contractor in full for all materials and service installation. In our lease agreement it specifies that the tenant shall deliver copies of a Waiver of Lien to the landlord along with evidence that such Lien Waiver has been duly filed with the Prothonotary prior to commencement of work or delivery of materials. Can someone tell me which is the correct form to use/fill out? I am filling it out for the General Contractor to release the university from all responsibility of payment for any materials and services. I do not know how to go about filing with the Prothonotary. Please advise(Time sensitive) Thank you....Read More
When a general contractor offers a discount on an invoice does the release of liens reflect the gross amount? If the invoice is 8,820 and the discount nets it to 8,483, does the release of liens have 8,820 on it?

We are a subcontractor and provided a service, our last day worked was 8-29-2022. We still have punch list items to complete. Does the last day work start on 8-29-2022 or do we need to wait until all punch list items are completed. Trying to determine the timeline for filing a mechanics lien....Read More
I own a building and hired a GC to manage remodel. I sent them plans, we agreed on price, and signed the contract. Contractor is responsible for all construction until certificate of occupancy is granted by city.
Now the contractor has come to me and said there is no sprinkler plan for the building, they did not budget for one, and I am responsible for the cost of sprinkler installation.
My plans do not include a separate 'sprinkler plan' however, the plans do clearly state that a 'sprinkler system is required' and that a supplemental sprinkler plan will be provided at a later date.
It is my position that they should have seen the line in the plans stating that sprinklers are required and budgeted for them. They also should have known without even seeing the plans that sprinklers would be required as they are on almost all construction now in Philadelphia. I believe I should be responsible for paying for the design and submission of a 'sprinkler plan' and they should be responsible for the cost of installation of sprinkler system.
It seems to me like they are playing dumb and acting like they had no idea sprinklers were required in attempt to push the cost to me.
Who is correct? Any insight is greatly appreciated!
Hi, We were doing a home remodel in Wynnewood, PA and the customer is not paying final balance because they did not like the some of the finishes and making excuses to not pay.

The project was completed around 01/31/23 and we have been going back and forth regarding payment. The owner is denying any further payments....Read More
We have purchased material from a PA based corporation and have requested a conditional release upon payment. The Pa corporation is stating that it is illegal under PA law for them to provide a conditional release even if it is contingent upon payment. My understanding of the applicable stautes is that as long as the release is predicated upon their receipt of payment they are legal under PA law....Read More
I recently completed two projects for a tenant of a building in Philadelphia. The tenant was satisfied with the completed projects but was not satisfied with the behavior of one of my subcontractors. The tenant is demanding an unreasonable discount for the one job that was performed by the subcontractor mentioned. I offered the tenant a $200 discount for her troubles, but she has demanded a discount in excess of $500. The original cost of that project was approximately $2200. I have not had any contact with the building owner....Read More
