    Post: Owner Not paying General Contractor

    Posted by Jen Marris on 11/13/08

    My welding company does a lot of work for a general
    contractor, on one particular fast track job they asked us
    to do the metals contract as normal but they also asked us
    to subcontract out the plumbing, HVAC, and concrete
    contract b/c they had too much going on and couldn't
    handle it all. We did. Everything was paid except for the
    10% retainage. We entered into an A101 contract with the
    general so my lawyer says we can't do anything until the
    owner and the general go to court, owner isn't paying due
    to lack of funds at firts, now he made something else up.
    Unfortunately we did not put anything in writing with the
    HVAC, plumbing, and Concrete contractors we hired but they
    knew the job was PAID WHEN PAID and we didn't pay them b/c
    we weren't paid and we weren't paid b/c the general
    contractor wasn't paid. Now they are threatening to sue
    b/c they know they can go after us b/c we had no contract
    other than verbal. Any suggestions???
