punch list questions

August 13, 2019

Hello! We are hopefully wrapping up a very painful project in which we had a general contractor use a slew of subcontractors to install windows and hardie siding. We just received the punch list and gc is now changing the the final terms of payment. I have two questions for any knowledgable folk out there. One, we are being asked to sign the punch list now before the work is done - is this common? My second question is in regards to using the punch list to change the contract - Our original contract called for final payment to be made when all work was complete and project was inspected by building inspector. The punch list has terms listed that now want final payment in different installments based on when parts of the punch list is complete. It no longer mentions inspection by the building inspector. If we sign this punch list does it negate our original contract payment terms?
