Heck no pay is common too. They will string the grass cut crews out for a couple months while actively recruiting your replacement when you figure out that the pay is not forthcoming.

Yesterday I spoke with a grass cut crew that called begging for work. They were told that they failed 740 grass cuts for not having edging pics for every property per requirements so they were not being paid for 2 months of cuts. Sucks but no pics no pay..

Welcome to the industry.

He didn't know. Was subbing from an p&p contracting company. I told them to Lien the properties since he never signed any contract with any national servicing company. He was getting robbed on pricing. They never learn eh?

Like Fremont said..... NO pay is common too.

As are any lies and/or excuses they can dream up for slow or no payment.

As far as I'm concerned 99.9% of these companies are liars.
The same way you can tell if a lawyer is lying.....is the same way you can tell if a national service company is lying.
When their gums are flapping.

I've got a company that is way over 60 days payment. They CLAIM they aren't getting paid.
I don't believe them. MCS and BAC are two of their major clients. MCS pays in 30 days, BAC usually pays within 3 weeks. So explain again WHY you want to wait 60 plus?????????????????
Yeah I don't work for them any longer.

A local code enforcement officer told me this past week that he is sick and tired of trying to be nice and give the property owners aka the banks a chance to clean up and mow the properties they own in my area.

He said that BAC is just as bad as any of them in blowing smoke and trying to get him off the phone without giving answers and without getting the properties taken care of.

The beauty of the lien, at least in my state, is that they cannot convey the property to someone else unless the Title is clear. Meaning that there can be no encumberances on the property.....i.e. A Lien....:clap:

So if they want to sell it, they gotta pay the piper.

Check into the lien laws in your state.



For clean ups, trash outs, lawn mowing etc I cannot lien in WY.

There has to be an actual physical improvement to the property.
Landscaping, planting trees adding a water feature, remodeling etc.
Its BS!!!!! I've got several properties I would have already liened if it wasn't for that.
