In VA, if you have a Class A contractors license with let's say a H/H specialty - are you able to hire licensed subcontractors to perform project work that is not within your specialty, but are the specialty of the subcontractor? Thank you....Read More

We are a Low Voltage Contractor for Hotels. We took on a job in Virginia which had delays and many redo's which we were not allowed to issue Change Order's for and 1-week before were supposed to be complete the GC removed us from project with an outstanding balance due to us of around $30k. We issued a property lien which got bonded off and now received a letter from the GC demanding we pay for their overruns of $70k because they switched contractors 1-week before the due date. The total project contract was $118k and they are claiming overruns of $100k, not quite sure how that is possible. ...Read More

Im a water damage mitigation contractor and have a solid contract for services rendered. The invoice is 99 days since issued. I believe they were issued a check by insurer for damages but only for 17,500. The homeowner recently refinanced their home and will not likely be selling or refinancing in the near future. Best way to get paid? I'm preparing a small claim (in my county the limit is $25,000) for the invoiced amount, $24,824. (includes late fees) and will be proceeding later this week....Read More

We were hired as subcontractors by a general contractor to complete work on a home. The owner of home signed a contract with us for the work amount of $11,600 an amount that was already agreed upon between him and the gc that subcontracted us.. now the project is nearly complete the owner fired us two days prior to completion ( knowing we don't possess a GC license) and is refusing to pay. The general contractor that hired us won't back us and is telling us there was never actually a contract for that amount of 11,600 between the two parties. Without a GC license in VA I'm reading everywhere that we have no protections or recourse now that payment is not being made. ...Read More
