A schedule of values (SOV) is used as management tool in monthly pay app processing, and as a valuable tool in evaluating a project’s progress as a completion percentage related to plan.
It’s natural to avoid complex paperwork, but a subcontractor agreement should always be put to writing. Here’s a free download of a simple subcontractor agreement.
Those preparing to recover from the California fires face a slew of challenges, but construction will play a huge part in restoring California communities affected by these fires.
There’s no other way to say it — a written contract signed by both parties is always better than a verbal contract or a simple handshake deal.
Part of zlien‘s mission since our founding has been to provide helpful tools and resources to the entire construction industry to help folks get paid the money they earned on their projects. As part of that, we even provide important construction payment templates and forms, free of charge, for use by anyone in the industry.
We have forms available for all 50 states, and that includes lien waivers. Below, please find links to download lien waivers for all 50 states.
A lien waiver is kind of like the construction industry’s version of a receipt for payment. A contractor pays you $100k, and you waive $100k in lien rights by signing a lien waiver. It’s as simple as that. Everybody is protected (both from non-payment and from the threat of a mechanics lien), folks get paid what they earned, and the payment process is fair.
So, how to file a mechanics lien? The devil is always in the details, and mechanics lien laws in the United States require an extraordinary amount of detail. To make matters more complex, the requirements for filing a lien differ depending on the project’s location.
As you can see from all of the information we’ve presented above, it can be very complicated to answer the question of whether or not you have lien rights.
