We filed a timely prelim on a public works (DWP) job and subsequently filed a Stop Notice. The DWP representative said they would not issue a joint check because the GC's contract has no listed subcontractors. I will not release my Stop Order because I know if the GC receives the check he will not pay us because he is in great debt. What can we do?...Read More

CaliforniaLien ReleasesStop Notice
This is a Public Project - a second tier subcontractor filed a Stop Notice against the first tier Subcontractor. ($200K) The first tier Subcontractor filed a Stop Notice against the General Contractor. ($400K) Half of the first tiers Stop Notice amount includes the second tiers Stop Notice amount. However, because both Stop Notices were sent to the Owner, the Owner is holding $600K, plus 25%. We tried to explain to the Owner they are 'double dipping' but they told us by law they must hold this money and if we want to get it released, we must file affidavits with the courts under Civil Code Section 9400 - for excessive monies held. It's an obvious administrative error. We've never seen this on any of our other projects before. Do we (1)have to accept this error (2) file the affidavits as the Owner and law states or (3) is there some legal explanation showing that a second tier is part of a first tier and not their own separate charges? Thanks!!!...Read More
