Customer Question

If the contract says 1/3 is due upon final inspection, he is not entitled to that 1/3 until final inspection is completed. If someone else is doing the finish and the rough is the end of this GC contract with you, then he is finished and the last payment should be made. So, if you are responsible for the finish work, the GC is done and not responsible for your finish work and final inspection means final inspection of the work done by this contractor for which this contractor is responsible and they would not have to wait until you finish the work to get paid.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The contract you have saying he gets the final 1/3 upon final inspection would typically mean when the finish work is done IF the GC were responsible for doing the finish work. However, since you are liable for the finish work and the GC work is done with the rough work, then you owe him final payment upon you inspecting the rough work to make sure that is done properly.
