I'm a subcontractor, I completed all the flatwork for a new construction home. I have done multiple projects for the General over the last 3 years without any problems. This project they took my invoice and modified it, claiming they don't pay for incidentals, or materials used on their projects other than the labor to complete the project. I use the same template for every invoice and list the same line items on every invoice, which they have paid every time until now. They actually paid a portion of this invoice immediately upon receipt, but They are attempting to reduce the final invoice from over $6K to just over $1K. In correspondence they admitted that the bank and their customer both approved my invoice payment, yet they are refusing to pay. The job is also 3 hours from me, so I have a substantial amount of time, fuel, per diem, travel costs, labor, and out of pocket materials tied up into this project. What do I need to do?...Read More

I work in a chemical company. Contractors are subject to the Texas early payment rule (payment for construction within 35 days) We are trying to determine if 'construction' is for equipment installed in a chemical plant - pumps, exchangers, reactors, etc. Some people indicate that if the equipment is made to be removed, then it really is not 'construction' just 'parts' and is not subject to mechanics liens and not subject to the texas early payment requirement. I believe that equipment installed in a chemical plant (parts that make the chemical plant operator) should be considered 'constuction'. Just like a car - the transmission is designed to be replaced - so heat exchangers and pumps in a chemical plant are also made or designed to be replace - your thoughts?...Read More
I have a customer that I assembled a playset for.
He paid all but $130. He never argued the price but refused to pay me at the time of completion. He did not pay until 3 hours after I left the residence and then refused to answer any calls or text messages from me. He never replied or tried to call me back. After finally sending me a payment he shorted me by $130 dollars. When I requested the rest or tried to reach out to him to inquire as to why he didn't pay the full amount, he refused to answer any calls or texts. How can I get the rest of my money? ...Read More
We have a project that the owner wants to pay us directly. The owner wants to set the pay terms as follows: we submit our pay app to the GC ( who has up to 30 days to review and process and submit to the owner) the Owner would then submit payment to us (the subcontractor) within 24hrs of receiving the pay app form the GC. I am just wanting to know if these terms work for us or against us when factoring in the Prompt Pay Act. Thank you...Read More
