I installed an irrigation system and the guy refused to pay and called the cops on me. Seeing as I did not get paid I cut the pipe coming out of the house and pulled the entire system out and went home. I did not cause damage, i took back the material that he did not wish to pay for. The cop couldn't do anything about it. If I left and came back then it would have been illegal

Fun fact: In some states this is considered a crime. In Texas, it’s called Theft of Service and has varying levels of severity. Depending on the amount of money involved, it can be anywhere between a Class C Misdemeanor and 1st Degree Felony.

Big props for the part about not getting even or destroying property. That makes YOU the bad guy and they could end up not only getting out of paying you but also collecting from you. Contracts are a must. I've never done any work (for pay) or asked someone else to do work (for pay) on a verbal agreement. Too much can go wrong. Multiple payment methods are nice, too, but I'd never thought of that.

Well if I purchase material and install it and the customer will pay for nothing, meaning they aren't a customer, I still own the parts or material I installed. Ishould be able to remove or destroy any of that without any legal recourse, unless I break something unrelated to that in the process. I saw one where the lady wasnt happy with the tile job, it wasn't very good, she said she wasn't going to pay him, so he cracked a few tiles up and stormed out. She tried suing him, idk how that worked out, but I'd assume if she paid for material, she'd win. But some other contractor unrelated to the job came in and covered to redo the job. It's funny they were talking about it like there were damages, but if the tilework wasn't satisfactory, its all going to be demoed anyway when redone, so what damages? He's just starting the demo process for the next guy lol.

This is one of the most time-consuming, tedious types of work and it's just repetitive to say the least but it is one of the most satisfying things I've ever done. I love pressure washing, especially concrete. To be able to watch it change and become so clean right in front of your eyes is just like the coolest feeling and that's what makes it hard to stop. It does suck being wet LOL but it's so cool to watch it become so clean. It's amazing what high pressure water can do, and some cleaning chemicals

I’m a painter and I always collect a 70% deposit to cover costs and labor just in case. Since I’ve started doing it this way, I haven’t had a problem with getting paid. Most people ask me if it’s okay to pay the whole amount up front. Filing contractor leans costs money and you never get those fees back.

That’s weird? My old carpet tech job makes customers pay first before starting the work on their carpets, after that they have 3 months of free minor stain service if they’re not satisfied with the first initial clean. $100 for first timer and with a square footage of 360 at most. You should try to collect the money first, then service after so the customers don’t flake out on you. Company policy I guess…

@Jack Hudler In NC state if services are not paid for in the moving industry we are allowed to either return to original property and or lock them up in storage until it’s paid, and storage paid too by the day, then it’s delivered. We decided the easier option for us, and dropped it off. As we don’t feel holding items hostage is fair. This was 5years ago now.

Another tip; give an estimate that is higher than the bid, with a discount for “cash/pmt, on completion”. If they don’t pay when the work is done, they owe the full amount. This can help offset the cost of the collection process.

If discounts for immediate payment are such a big deal, just put a markup for late payment in the contract. It comes out to the same thing.

The process of doing that is not easy though and a lot times it won't go through.. Is unlike the video states you cannot put a mechanic lien on a house. A mechanic lien goes on a vehicle, however you can do a construction or labor lien on the house however you have to prove that the customer contacted you, it was you and your company that was there and such-and-such work was performed here. Here simple yard cleaning or simple services does not qualify it has to be a moderate to a major construction work, work like renovating construction tearing down and rebuilding. Small services will be denied a lien and told to take it to small claims court.. thats 90% of the country

@Jaime Santiago not good, that’s then destruction of property.

Getting “even” may seem justifying and satisfying in the moment, but will only bite you in the arse in the long run.

I love that you didn't say destroy the work or get even, too many shotty people out there doing it. I was worried this was another video of a person telling people to destroy it and was ready to comment exactly what you said. Listen to what this guy said, take notes and apply it to your strategy. Don't learn the hard way about contracts before starting work and when more work is requested once the work is started, stop work until a new contract is updated with what they want and then having the updated contract signed before continuing work. Protect yourself and you can avoid any issues of payment. Also the more explained and itemized your contract is the less questions you'll recieve about reason for cost. Great video! 👍

You should be really careful putting liens on property. I have seen on two occasions, the commercial tenant contracting the work and the tenant didn’t pay the landscaper/carpenter. Both were sued by actual Owner of property for Slander of Title. You should stick to a written agreement and also check your local county appraisal district to make sure who the actual ownership is.

Always have a written contract!!! Include a clause that covers litigation and costs. I made that mistake on one job and from then on its included on every contract period. I have only had to use it a handful of times over the years luckily. One company was so pissed that I charges interest on back account weekly if it was 90 days or more past due. $10k job turned into a $30K job after court, lawyer fees, and interest.

Anyways, I’d love to have a contract as air tight as yours. Is there any way I could bug you for a copy of yours that I can use as a reference? I obviously wouldn’t want any sensitive info of yours, but if you have a blank copy of your contract, I would really appreciate it! Thanks, Shane

@THIS IS #MAGA COUNTRY I charge between 3.5% and 10% depending on their credit reputation. If they have a history of prompt payment then it's lower, but if they are always late and such the rate goes up. My paper work shows they were at 7.85% and after the court case they paid within 10 days per the judgement. I only charge what coveres the interest I have to pay for parts from vendors, labor, insurance, etc.

It’s a difficult situation many people face . My dad did lots of work for a man over the years . Lots of building work in London . Never had an issue , until one year when he was split between a couple of jobs . My dad needed payment , which was promised , but in the meantime my dad was doing the work , & having to buy materials to complete other jobs he was on fir this same person . With the promises being broken , & the bills piling up , my dad was forced to go to court for £12,000 . The man , who he had always trusted , pleaded that he was bankrupt . He turned up to court in a new “ so called “ hire car . My dad never did see the money . And not long after that he stopped taking on big projects , which he was buying materials in advance . This was over 35 years ago , but I never forget how hard it hit my dad . And the trust he lost in people because of it .

Honestly if a customer try’s skipping out on paying and makes it difficult to collect money after the hard work and labor I honestly wouldn’t mind causing damage to the home until I caused enough property damage to equal the exact amount of money owed. Lesson for the customer don’t mess with the guy who worked his ass off through harsh weather conditions and spent his time to get a job done to collect pay… Surely they WILL PAY 😈

Always ALWAYS take a deposit, mate! NEVER do ANY work without taking a deposit. Doesn't have to be a large one but big enough that they'll think twice about walking away without paying. Always include clauses to your contract for additional fees relating to non-payment too in case you do need to take it as far as court, especially for big jobs. I know some people also add a markup for every day/week of non-payment to deter people from putting it off without prior agreement

@Cliff Booth Used to work for a small contractor. Had one or two people every year that were rich as fuck (just bought new expensive cars, owned a turboprop seaplane etc) but didn't want to pay, or threatened us with lawsuits to shield them from paying. I know you just have to take my word for it, but our quality standards were quite high. They had no grounds to refuse, they were just fuckers that thought they were more important than we were.

Not a lawyer but pressure washing in most states, if not all, probably does not meet the legal definition of “improvement” that is needed to file a mechanics lien. Also, if you don’t follow all of the proper procedures of filing a lien, such as notification, they could then come after you for filing a frivolous lien. Seek the advice of a lawyer before doing this.

@EBP Thicc Papa Yas understandable man I get it I don’t necessarily agree with it either but considering it’s the way I make money and considering I also work hard to earn the tips I get instead of just doing the bare minimum it just sucks when I don’t get tipped because that’s the primary way I get my income. But glad we could both share our points of view!

I once had a customer that refused to pay the amount we agreed back when was an exterminator. After I insisted, he finally gave in and told me he had cash in the basement. I figured that was kind of weird but I’ve seen people keep money in the bathroom so it didn’t bother me that much. While I’m waiting, I hear footsteps behind me so I turn around and it’s this dude trying to stab me with a knife. The knife barely missed my lung because a turned around at the last minute. I can’t lie, I got very angry. I was able to get a punch in after he pulled the blade out, and it turns out he has a weak chin and I knocked him out. Thats all I can say now…iykyk.

Seriously? I installed a 3 x 10 foot electric sign on a 30 foot pole and the customer claimed his bookkeeper was on vacation so i stated that's UNACCEPTABLE and he said you will get a check by the end of next week. His sign was taken down that night after he closed. He called screaming at me so I calmly stated we would install his sign by the end of next week but I never went back. He called me everyday for a month. Bottom line is a business without a sign is a sign of no business😅🤣🤣🤣😅

When I used to do construction like 10 years ago LOL, we would get half of the cost of the job up front. We could go ahead and get paint, materials, wood, just whatever we need it for the job and also be able to have just a little bit of extra just in case because after all, we knew we were going to do the work so not only us but the customer giving 50% upfront of work and money and we never really had an issue getting the rest of the money. If someone was willing to pay $2,500 to $6,000 then they most likely had the money to just go ahead and pay for the entire job. When you require half of the payment upfront, if a person can't do that, that usually means that they can't pay the other 50%
Carrie Thompson
Carrie Thompson 2 gün önce
@Charles G right. I understand that and I also understand why the homeowners are not trusting because even 12 years ago, me and my fiance drink a lot of alcohol. We didn't do any hardcore drugs but it just seemed like anybody that we tried to get to work for us was either always super hung-over, geeking on the job or his cousin LOL, he would take advantage of the homeowners being nice and saying that we can get drinks out of the garage refrigerator. They would actually go out and stock up the refrigerator so that we had a bunch of drinks while we were on the job so we didn't constantly have to keep a cooler or whatever and we would always find him in the back of the house on a 5 gal f****** bucket, sitting down drinking like three or four dr. Peppers, sweating to death because he drank way too much liquor the night before but he was an amazing painter. The only reason that we required 50% upfront was because almost all of our work was word-of-mouth so most of all these people went in knowing what to expect. It was going to be a job as close to perfect as it could possibly get and that we would not do them wrong. But again, this was 12 years ago. The last job I did was in 2009 and we were in this really big flood in Cobb County Georgia and we lost our home, after that we split up because I quit drinking and my fiance at the time would not and it was becoming a problem especially one that quit so the trauma from the flood just intensified everything and blew everything out of the water and from there, it was just a klusterfuk of thing after thing. A tedious is painting can be, I do miss it a lot and it's not like you just forget how to do it. Even 12 years later, it just feels like people don't trust female painters even today which is just crazy to me. We would always work with people if they just felt like they didn't know us and it was a new customer, we would take a third and then we had some people that wanted to just go ahead and pay for the whole job up front but we honestly didn't like doing that because it kept us on our toes knowing that we had our money to work for Edit: That same boyfriend/fiance died in a drinking and driving accident on my bday 2 days later. We dunno if he did it on purpose due to depression or was just really too messed up to realize what he was doing. The day after Christmas... u can't make this shit up

Agreed! I own a biz, we take 1/3 down though, not 50%, just because it allows me to get a much higher sales volume (over $1 mil yearly gross). This is because there’s a lot of homeowners that don’t trust contractors either, so they’re more comfy with 1/3 down. My thing is, I screen the homeowners really well, and I don’t do jobs for sketchy people. If somebody seems sketchy, or like they have a personality problem, or like they’re a very big cheapskate, then I give them an extra high price and I ask for more than my typical 1/3

That's the unfortunate part of trying to run your own business, especially if your a freelance contractor, people will always try to get one over on you.
Yes, a contract should be the best way to go. You can at least sue them if they don't pay.

Yeah get a contract and give them several fair chances to pay and if they don’t just sue them. And make sure to sue for enough to cover the job as well as legal fees. Example, cost of job is $2,000? Take them to small claims court for $4,000, and state that you came to that number based on covering the $2,000 owed and another $2,000 to cover lost time, and legal fees.

This goes both ways, we recently had a power washing business wash our backyard concrete and flagstone (in retrospect not the greatest idea.) Said they would go quicker without having anything in writing, so we just paid up front and they absolutely destroyed our concrete (surprisingly, flagstone was washed unevenly, but mostly ok.) Streaking and erosion on the top layer of concrete ruined the look of our porch and the pathing in the side yard. No recourse for the customer for a terrible job without written contracts.

It’s sad that you had to deal with such a shady POS that ruined your hard scape in order for you to learn a great yet hard lesson. They purposely didn’t want anything in writing because they knew the whole time what could of/would of happened, yet they just wanted to get paid and could care less about your property or their lack of quality work since they didn’t have to worry about abiding by a contract. But now you know to always have a legit contract and ALWAYS have it read over by an attorney if possible too because even though they give you a written contract that doesn’t mean they aren’t trying to still screw you over in the fine print of that contract too. Hope the best for you in the future!

Honestly that concrete was probably in very poor condition anyway, no pressure washer should damage concrete at all. Sounds like it was porous from many cold winters (water expanding and cracking it) or a bad set. Flagstone, well it all depends on the type of stone. If it's slate, probably should think twice. Granite? Blast away.
