Collection Techniques for Subcontractors

February 6

Learn how a subcontractor can navigate and manage the complexities of mechanics' liens, stop payment notices and payment bond claims.

Subcontractors are faced with multiple challenges interfering with prompt and timely payment. This topic will provide strategies for safeguarding against these risks, including how to protect payment rights (and limit exposure) in the subcontract, preserving and filing liens, asserting bond claims, knowing your legal rights to payment, and ultimately, how to get timely and fully paid.

Learning Objectives

- You will be able to define the mechanic's lien process.

- You will be able to identify contract provisions which impact your payment rights.

- You will be able to recognize when litigation or ADR is necessary.

- You will be able to explain the differences between private project and public project lien rights.
