  • Pay application not timely paid?
  • Not paid even when Schedule of Values show phase completion?

  • Change Orders approved or accepted?
  • Inspection green tagged by the city/county but subs not paid?
  • Bank inspector signed off on fund release, but you haven’t been paid?
  • Issues as to FFE modifications and payment?
