Legal Question

Asked on: 11/17/10, 10:28 am

I am finishing a home addition project with a general contractor in North Carolina. The GC has been a little lose with his sub contractors and I am not 100% sure he has paid them all. In fact he has switched a few times on Subís for such things as electrical work. At the end of the project he wants to give me a release of work from him as the GC to avoid future lien actions. Although I know I need this from him, do I not also need individual ones from the Subís? He insists his release covers any potential actions by subs in the event of a dispute, but does this really protect me or am I still subject to a Subís Lien if they were not paid and chose to file against my property?
