Payment of Construction Subcontractors – Chapter 56 of the Texas Business & Commerce Code

A “Pay-when-Paid” clause is not covered under Chapter 56, as Chapter 56 “does not affect provisions that affect the timing of a payment…if the payment is to be made within a reasonable period.” It merely creates a future event as a convenient time for payment; but still requires the general contractor to pay the subcontractor. In other words, in most cases a “Pay-when-Paid” clause is enforceable.
