Please note that I am in the middle of combining 4 websites and so occasionally the links will take you back and forth until I've finished it. I'm very sorry for the inconvenience but when it's done it'll be great!

Joint Check Agreements


This page contains a brief article about joint check agreements and a link to purchase one if you'd like. Joint check agreements can be very good for a subcontractor and supplier, and even for general contractors. I hope you enjoy it. As always, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me! Bookmark our site to make your visits easier.

If your supplier uses joint check agreements then you are fortunate indeed.

Joint check agreements are very helpful if you do not have good credit and/or if you don't want to have to worry about paying high material bills in advance of your general contractor, or customer if you're contracted directly with the property owner, paying you.

The way our supplier works it: We fill out the joint check agreement and then fax and/or mail the form to our general contractor. He signs his section and then returns it to us. We then forward the joint check agreement to our supplier.

At this point we have an agreement with both our general contractor and our supplier that each time the general contractor issues us a payment on the job he will issue a check made out jointly to us and our supplier. This check will be for either the whole amount invoiced for or just for the material owing (with a 2nd check made out to you and not joint to make up the balance of your invoice).

Many times the general contractor will issue two checks, one that is joint to cover the material and one that is not joint which covers the balance of the payment due to us. We record the joint check into our accounts receivable, we endorse the back and then we mail the check to our supplier to pay for our material expenses.

We record the second check through our receivables (which is written only to us, not joint) and deposit it into our business account. Don't be afraid to ask your supplier if he/she will consider a joint check program for you.

The supplier is protected in that they can (and should) file a preliminary notice on the project, thereby clearing the way to file a lien on a project if the general contractor does not pay timely.

We have a joint check agreement available for purchase here.

Pssst... Have YOU had a construction insurance check-up lately?

If you do work in California, let Southern California Insurance Brokerage quote all of your construction insurance and surety bonds needs for you now, today.

Quotes are free so check it out!

You never know, you might save over what you're paying now, and no matter what, you'll find that these guys (Gary Oltmanns and Gabriel Hill) are better than anyone you've ever dealt with before.

After struggling through terrible customer service with three other brokers (one even went out of business overnight!), we found Southern California Insurance Brokerage Inc. and it was a whole new world for our construction business.

From that day forward they were our construction insurance and surety bonds provider for the entire time we were California contractors so we know personally that their service is one of a kind!

If you've purchased from me or contacted me for help with something in your business, you know what a high value I place on good customer service; I absolutely would not recommend these guys if I didn't believe in them.

Don't lose another day, waste another dollar, pull another hair or snap another pencil.

Kick your frustration to the curb.

There's no charge to get your quote, there's no obligation, and it'll be one of the best things you'll ever do for your business.
