repo

if a client refuses to pay you for work done to a property is it beyond someones thought process to just repo your materials.. **** i paid for locks and tarp etc.. and if the client is refusing to pay you for it. why cant i just go take my things back.. am i the only one that has had this thought process?

The simple truth is that once you install it they own it. The closest I ever heard of someone getting back on not being paid was a friend who got stiffed for the drywall finishing at a house.

He took a hammer and knocked a hole every four feet in every piece of drywall.

He got caught and ended up in front of a judge. When the judge asked him what he was doing he said he knew he could not take back the drywall so he was taking back his labor.

He said he figured that the amount of labor needed to patch a few hundred 2" holes was about the same as what it cost him to finish the drywall in the first place.

While the judge did chuckle at my friends creativity he also fined him $1,500 to pay for the damages.

My friend said it was the best $1,500 he ever spent because it would be nearly impossible to patch that many holes and not be able to tell it was patched.

Right on the money !! We were having a house built. The contractor flakes out on us and cant finish because he is insolvent. The cabinets were installed just not decked for the counter tops. IF they were formica'd they would have not been able to uninstall them BUT since they were not done they were pulled. Legally. Once installed it is an integral component of the property. Not to say you cant go and put a differently coded lock on or the tarp becomes damaged but that is entirely up to you !

re

I've always wanted to go dewint a house after they didn't pay for the wint. Just send them a message and say "since you didn't pay for the wint you obviously didn't want it so I put it back the way it was for you."
