Contractor failed to provide lien waivers as specified in the contract
Our contract with our general contractor on our home rebuild includes the following sections:
a. ”Contractor shall submit to Owner an invoice for payment and fully executed lien waivers in a form acceptable to Virginia mechanic’s line law(s), ……”
b. Indemnification to Owner on the payment or nonpayment by Contractor to any of its subs or sub-subs for work performed on or off site.
I’ve had several subs who haven’t been paid, and they both have contacted me about helping get paid. They mentioned putting a lien on the house to get paid. The contractor did not submit lien waivers or invoices for the work.
What are my options – is the contractor in breach of the contract? Can the subs put a lien on my house?
