Pay When Paid - Pay If Paid


There are different perspectives on the risk of nonpayment.

A “pay if paid” condition is a condition precedent that requires payment from the owner before the contractor has a duty to pay a subcontractor or supplier. A “pay when paid” clause is a payment condition that establishes a reasonable time for the contractor to comply with its duty to make payment to a subcontractor or supplier upon the contractor’s receipt of payment from the owner. Subcontractors may also use both pay if paid and pay when paid clauses to condition their obligation to pay lower?tier subcontractors and suppliers. This video reviews the differences between these two types of condition precedents.
