I'm a property owner who hired a GC to build a house on my property. when the GC exceeded the total estimate for the house by $80K, I told him that I was terminating the current construction contract and offered him a new one. He refused this offer and refused to sign the Lien Release that I gave him, and packed his tools and left the job site. He sent me a last invoice for work done. There are 4 subs who are owed money on that invoice. Since I do not now trust the GC, I intend to pay the subs myself. I need a Lien Release that will give me peace of mind that these subs will not file a lien against me in the future. I have paid for the cost of construction myself there is no loan. Can you help? ...Read More

Do I have to pay the factoring company or offest the payments from what the subs owes?...Read More

I'm run a solar sales organization. I have a client who paid cash for Solar, Roof and a new HVAC unit with ducting work. The HVAC construction company I subcontracted fir the job was a total mess. He came out to give an estimate and while we were still negotiating the projects cost. He started the job without a signed agreement between us and without any form of pdown payment exchanged for him to begin the job. He installed the unit that he knew a part in the furnace was on a recall. So it didn't work. He left a whole in the drywall near ducting system. He left gaslines unvalved and then was unreachable when we were trying to get him to schedule to come back to fix all the issues he had left on the project unfinished. We had to hiring another subcontractor to correct the issues inorder to pass the HERS test. Which added to the overall project expenses. When we sent him an invoice of the additional charges to fix his mistakes and for having abandoned the project. We deducted the additional expenses from the verbal agreement he made with us at $12,500.00, we did not hear back from him. In fact we have still not heard back from him since. However, he filled a Mechanical Lien against the homeowners and their property for $14,000.00. The lien he filed is fraudulent we never signed a subcontracting contract with him or his company at any time during the process of the project and installation. The property is in Napa County but their court house says the lien wasn't filed in their courts jurisdiction. I need help getting to a resolution for both the homeowners and my company. Considering that this contractor has numerous suspensions and violations on his licenses. I have a feeling that the lien my have been improperly filed and granted. Is there a way to determine if he also committed fraud when having the lien put against the homeowners property? How can my company dispute the lien validity in order to have it removed and/or expunged?...Read More

If we sign an unconditional waiver and release on progress payment for our March pay application invoice, are we waiving our rights to anything still owed prior to that? They have paid March; but not February. If we sign the waiver for March, do we have any lien rights for our February billing?...Read More

The GC is requesting the final conditional waiver for the retainage held but we have not been paid for the previous pay application. Now GC is saying they are withholding payment for the previous pay application until they receive the final unconditional waiver. This seems unfair....Read More

I have a subcontractor that signed a final and unconditional lien release for payment on a job where he did not pay for materials. We are the supplier and can not go after the GC or Owner as they already have a release from him and have paid him in full. We are still within our lien rights for the full amount. Other than civilly going after him do we have a criminal action we can push? This guy has done this before and while we would like the money we would rather have him charged. What do you think? More

Our client has a habit of asking us to provide a UNCP Release the moment the check has been cashed. However, payment hasn't cleared our bank. To my understanding, isn't there a grace period or civil code that our client should be following in the State of California that they need to legally wait to inquire on having us (General Contractor) to provide an UNC Progress Release? Somewhere thru the grape vine, I thought it was 7 days from when payment has been received/cleared bank. After this, then they can technically ask for us to provide. Am I mistaken?...Read More
