So Ive always been confused by the posts from people saying they have past due invoices out to 90+ days. First off in business you should always have a good lawyer on retainer. Second why would you guys ever let invoices hit 90 days?! Third its called a lien, file it! Its hands down the simplest way to get paid most times just a threat of one gets the job done.
Lol! Are you new to the business of have you never read a sub contractor agreement?
These fools agree to pay as paid terms just to get the work then they cry when they don't get paid the week after they do the work. Net 30,45,60,90,and even 120 are not uncommon payment terms with some of our clients.
Liens are not effective in our state. You have to have a contract for the job, you have to file a notice of intent to lien within a certain number of days, and if you aren't a licensed contractor you can't file.
90% of these newbie's are working out of a pick up truck on their personal SS# and have no lien rights.
As for attorney's my brother is an attorney and you can't just threaten or call an attorney and get results like people think. I hear attorney this and attorney that on every eviction of each time I deal with an HOA. Never once has it amounted to anything.
The key to this problem is don't work for those companies.
