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???
