I am an HVAC subcontractor working on a big project. I have filed a mechanics lien because of non-payment. 2 of my payment applications were not paid in full, but I was told by the project manager that the bank agreed to work in place 100%. I never received notice that my payment application wasn't being paid in full. This was only found out once I received the check. Is there a way for me to find out if the bank paid 100% of the HVAC SOV during the concerned payment cycle?...Read More

Hello, How long can a company wait to charge my credit card after a project was completed??? I hired a company to install a fence in my yard. They required 50% for a deposit and the other 50% on completion. The company installed my fence early November 2022 and never charged my card again or contacted me again for payment. I have anxiously checking my account everyday to see if they have charged me, and I’m wondering if there is a time limit they can go back and do that?...Read More

It has always been after four progress payments, the final payment would be after City Inspectors sign-off and home owner inspection that the job was completed. Recently the GC requested a final payment after stating electrical was completed and the City Inspector signed-off the electrical, but the owner inspection found the electrical was not completed. Bare hot wires where outlets should have been installed and a circuit breaker that will not re-set, not powering the master bath or bedroom outlets. The GC is refusing to complete and/or correct the electrical or any other work until the final payment is made and is threatening legal action with a lien. Am I obligated to make this final payment with only the City Inspectors sign-off instead of making the final payment when the electrical is actually completed?...Read More

In the contract payment terms, would it be normal for us to ask for 15% down from the GD as a initial deposit to get this project off the ground?...Read More

I’ve searched different websites and still can’t find an answer. I’m a California general contractor and a subcontractor (cabinet maker) is asking for a 10% deposit ($10k) and wants progress payments while they are fabricating the cabinets. Since I, as a GC, can’t ask for progress payments without materials on the jobsite, can a subcontractor? Thanks in advance! John Rising 415-342-3066...Read More

I have a question regarding the Prime's delay in submitting a subcontractor's invoices to a vendor for payment. My business provided work for a Prime contractor. They are now rejecting invoices that are over 1 year old, even though we submitted these invoices in a timely fashion. Is there any requirement for a Prime to submit all invoices for service provided within a certain time frame? Or can a Prime hold onto a subcontractor's invoices, without submitting them to the state, for an indefinite period of time? TIA...Read More
