You Deserve To Get Paid For Your Work
As a professional, you are constantly at risk of not getting paid. However, as a contractor or subcontractor, there are plenty of safeguards you can put into place to protect yourself from customers who cannot or will not pay for the labor and materials you are putting into the project you’ve been working on.
Whether you work for a private customer or on a state project, our attorneys at May Brock Law Group can educate you on the correct processes for bond claims and stop-work notices in Las Vegas. Your hard work deserves protection. Taking the proper steps can shield you from customer complaints and ensure that customers compensate you for your work.
Helping You With The Stop-Work Notice Process
If you are working on a project but have not received payment according to your agreements with a homeowner, other contractor or business owner, you have the statutory right to give the client a stop-work notice. When the procedure is carried out correctly, according to Nevada law, you will be free from specific customer grievances such as claims of delays.
Stop-work notices require you to go through a specific process, whether or not this circumstance was part of the contract you signed with the client. If you rush into the stop-work notice, you might make a legal mistake that can prove very detrimental in the future. At May Brock Law Group, our attorneys will ensure you have the information you need to properly file a stop-work notice.
Using Bond Claims To Obtain Payment
When you take on a public works contract, as a contractor, you may be required to obtain a payment bond to protect subcontractors and suppliers if you fail to pay the bill for the construction. Bond claims and stop-work notices are intricate and complex procedures that require precise compliance to maintain your statutory rights.
With strict deadlines and complex paperwork, a simple mistake can derail your plans and leave you open to liability. At May Brock Law Group, our attorneys have decades of construction law experience that benefits clients in the Las Vegas area needing help with bond claims.
