Other Construction Payment Remedies


Understand the strengths and weaknesses of each remedy.

Beyond the classic payment remedies of mechanic’s liens, stop notices and payment bonds are the less traditional options. This video provides an overview of those less traditional payment remedies including prompt payment laws, terminating performance, statutory stop work orders, statutorily required security from owners, joint checks, and writs of attachment. Details on these remedies can vary widely from state to state, and these remedies may not be available in each state.
