What is the best methodology for terminating a contract when the Owner originally had a multi-prime agreement and contracts were issued (but no work had begun) and then the project moved to a Construction Manager model and the CM issued contracts directly to the subs (who were the original multi-prime contractors). A deductive change order does not seem in order. Would a termination be better?...Read More

Hi there, On a Lump Sum contract, the Specification lists for UPS battery type A or B is acceptable. Who decides which? I.e. Is it the Contractor who can benefit when choosing the lower price product. or is it the Engineer, who expects that the Contractor will have prices for the most erroneuos option in all cases, to cover himself and benefit if low price option is required Thanks Danni ...Read More

My fence contractor began work back in the beginning of May. They never filed a Preliminary Notice. Their work is terrible and while they have now completed the job yesterday (8/19/2021) to the best of their ability though not perfect, the refuse to take less than full payment. They want to put a lien on my house for the balance of $1877 as I am willing to still give $1877 additional to the $3755 owed. I am also the leasee of the property owned by a trust where I am the beneficiary, but not the trustee. Can they put a lien this late or take any action against me for non full payment? Thanks!...Read More

UtahConstruction ContractMechanics LienPreliminary Notice
My company did a residential rehab project in Orangeburg SC, the client asked that the original contract be revised due to a misunderstanding ( she suggested that I start working in both bathrooms at the same time. I said no I'm not doing that bathroom now, I've come to learn that she thought I meant I was not going to do it at all. When I actually meant it is not a good practice to have both bathrooms inoperable at the same time.) she had no input on what she'd like the revised contract to state. My changes were how the monies were to be paid going forward, she refused to sign the contract or offer any suggestions to try reach an agreement. After several attempts and weeks passing I finally stopped work on the project, advised the client why were had stopped work and that we would return when we had a signed contract ...Read More

My client is being very unreasonable, very nit picky, have been doing extra work that she is asking for, I’ve been trying to work with her but she now refuses to pay and I can’t keep going with no pay for my workers. Unfortunately the contract states that the remaining balance is due at end of project, but with all the unrealistic redos she’s been asking of us, we can’t continue. ...Read More
