Anyone have experience (good or bad) with this company? I've been burned by another company before and ended up getting info from tons of contrctors afterward. Not looking to be a part of anymore law suits. Trying to make sure these guys are OK before I sign a contractor agreement

you talking about Sweetwater Field Services in CA? for the PPC work?
(Property Preservation Contractor)

if so,you don't sign a contract with them.You just sign to acknowledge that you agree to the prices

I was burned by a company in Florida.

In my case the company was supposed to be based out of Las Vegas and had purchased another preservatin company working out of Texas...Luckily I only did 3 jobs before everything blew up. The supposed story is that the guy out of Texas was left holding the bag after the Las Vegas guys left the country. Class action law suits were being filed and following the paper trail. Cotractors being left owed thousands of dollars. I don't work off of much capital...so I can't afford to really get burnt. Splinter Hands is right about the number of stories out there on shady companies screwing contractors.

I hope no one signs this, this is their new amended agreement. It is an easier way for them to fire you and keep your money

LOL.
In order to avoid disrepecting anyone on this forum, I will respond to the contract in the following manner: I (myself) would be a fool to agree to anything like what is written above. I (myself) would have no business running a company that others depend on for their livelihood, if I would agree to risk losing payments for invoices over the terms in which they outline. I (myself) would deserve the screwjob I would get.
The wording is straight out of "How to avoid paying your contractors 101".
Is there a page two to the contract that requires you to buy only from their company store at rates they will determine?

M&M Mortgage Services has cut ties with Sweet Water field Services. It would seem that a contractor in Florida was owed money from Sweetwater,they didnt pay and he put a lien the house.

Good for him
