Perhaps clarifying what you are offering him will better help your responses. In other words, what services are you planning on supplying you "friend" with?

I say make a deal with him if he does not do maintenance he can give you those leads and you can give leads on the projects you don't want or don't specialize in . I do this with alot of other contractors and it works out very well. Hope this helps

If you are selling the work for him , collecting money ...doing any paper work at all (subbing it out) charge him anywhere from 15%-25%
If you are simply giving him a phone number ...I'm not sure.
Had a guy give us 10% for all dethaching I sent his way last spring. If they were messages for me regarding this work I phoned him with a list of names and numbers ..if I happened to answer the phone then I would simply give the customer his number.
