Legality question - chargebacks

Is there some sort of law that limits the time frame you can be charged back on a job? We just got an $1100 chargeback from 8 months ago. We regularly get them from a year or more. Of course, the National states that there is no limit to how far back they can go, but has anyone else ever found a law stating otherwise?

In my opinion the whole Chargeback issue MAY NOT legal. For example, if provide a services for A, B and C but fail to do D does that MEAN you should forfiet the ENTIRE AMOUNT of services completed for failing to provide service for D? Additionally, if you fail to do a PP on HOUSE A-meaning you don't begin services, should you be charged back $X for NOT starting the Job? Probably need an attorney to weigh in on this matter.

Something I don't really understand--

Job A is completed. Job A is paid.

8 months later, they say something is wrong with job A. Since it has already been paid, we will take money from your invoices for Jobs B, C, and D.

That doesn't seem legal. Also, the original question: Do they really have 8 months - 2 years to come after the money? We have literally been charged back grasscut fees from nearly 2 years ago becasue they say an inspector went back way back then and found a spot that wasn't mowed. Isn't there some sort of time limitation? I can't recoup the money from the crew who did it, he doesn't work for us anymore.

NOT that its not hard Enough to get paid For Job A to begin with

we have 48 to 72 hours to turn the job in and invoice and they have years to get the money back HMMMMMM no that seems fine And if you guys have a problem your being crybabies

lets see when those AGGGGGGGGED jobs get charged back

Well Gosh and Golly GEE between Thanksgiving and the End of January when is our business the slowest ? same time!

Could it be a bonus plan here for the RVMs get us 200 we will give you 20

Things like this is why rather than try to ramp up P&P during the winter to supplement my lawn care business I have chosen to take a part time day job.


I'm more likely to get paid for work completed.

Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

Chargebacks are illegal and falls under YOUR State Statues. You will need to consult an attorney.

Chargebacks? The Nationals now say "up to 7 years" after the work completed.

There is also a "co-mingling" of funds issue with Federal Funds if they are government insured loans...ie...robbing peter to pay paul issue. Legally they (Service Company) need to invoice YOU for the chargeback from Property A instead of "automatically" deducting from Property Z. According to legal representation we were told that technically a contractor should have a signed contract on Each and Every property you work on....not just a work order sent out on the email.

Yeah, that'll never happen.
