bad taper/mudder help

need some advice we are doing a high end new home
the h.o is running it so there is no control on trades quality right now (except for painter of course)problem is the taper did such a bad job ie unsanded patches everywhere tape line showng couple of ceiling ones split joint s starting to bulge .all the sanding has deep scratches marks
we showed the ho this stuff and said it needed to be fixed before we will put any finish coat on
the taper said it was the painters job to fix this stuff
well after a profanity laced conversation lol he said he would fix if they paid him more h.o. agreed to (dumbasses)
question is how can we cover our asses on this i dont want to put finish on and have them say fix this or that
what kind of document and what would you put down on it to make the ho agree that they are satisfied with the walls (tapers job)and wont hold us liable for anything they dont like (we will fix what we can but not at the expense of losing money or man hours for free)

PDCA covers this in P4-94: Responsibilities For Inspection And Acceptance Of Surfaces Prior To Painting And Decorating

I'd reference that in the contract. That would put the onus on the HO.
