I have a dispute with a GC. I was sent a lien waver to sign. If I delay signing do I have leverage over the GC? Does he need my waiver to get his final payment from the owner?
It wouldn't be the first time a GC has tried to get a sub to sign a waiver before being paid.From my experience, you sign the lien waver AFTER you get payed!!
I am appreciate the helpful information but no one answered my question. Does the GC need my lean waiver in order for the GC to be paid by the owner?I have a dispute with a GC.

And add language to your own contracts that no liens will be released before actual payment.I've mostly run into this when there was a lender involved and they won't release funds without the lien waver. Even on partial/progress payments. [...], if it is generic and you are only getting a partial or progress payment demand they reword it to state it only covers what was invoiced or otherwise covered by the payment you are accepting.
If you really miss the smell of new wood, get a table saw and build furniture in your basement! No ladders, climate controlled...I occasionally see carpenters slinging plywood on a roof of a new house....the smell of the wood...sometimes wish I could get back up there....kind of miss it a bit.
