Who exactly sets the industry standards
So after having our lawyer look over a new packet we received from one of the companies my husband is a contractor for he advised us not to sign it.
#13 states"Contractor shall at all times indemnify and hold harmless GCP and its clients against all liabiltiy for claims and liens of Contractor's, contractor's employees, subcontractors, laborers and material men, including any cost and expenses for Attorney feed. Futher, the contractor will make every effor to pay or settle any lien disputes."
When I told the team my husband would not be signing his right away they said fine we can not longer due business with him. They also stated it was the industry standard to not be able to lien a property.
Honestly no skin off our backs. I have a full time job making plenty of money to pay the bills and my husband is a diesel mechanic and CDL A driver by trade for over 30 years.
For what ever reason my husband liked doing the stuff, me not so much.
The best part is all the other contractors they had in the area did crap work and my husband was the one they always called to clean up their mess.
