Backcharge Question?

Company A goes into a property and maintains it for however long.

Then we begin to get work orders for that property starting with supply a bid for missing A/C unit then progressing to a final. Our guy doesn't bid all of the graffiti and the basement seepage etc because he has bid them in the past. We receive a work order to perform several bid approvals and refuse because they are all cut down from our original numbers.

Company C performs the work and we are back charged.

How do they determine who of all the companies that have visited this property will be the one getting hit with the backcharges?

So I am to believe that they sent us a work order. We refused it someone else supposedly did it. They charged us back yet the work was not done.

When confronted with this the "client" informed me that they will be performing this work at a later date.

Update. I just received an email that we are getting a check for the amount in question.

Guess I won? I'm just not sure it's a victory since it was my money in the first place.

This was one of my charge backs with the Brothers. I started breaking them out one by one and going after my money that way.

I am pretty sure they believe that contractors are toothless morons.

Employes of the five children have certainly talked to me as if I was on their level.


In case they hadn't noticed I'm not on their level. In my capacity I provide jobs.
In their capacity they provide labor. Not the same level.


Such stupidity like you mention really grinds my gears. Taking advantage of the hard working contractors is never OK.

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