this an non payment. were the main reasons.. how many rainy days do we piss and moan about. that we can't do anything, got a drought and cant cut grass. there was plenty of time to deal with court. was I sue happy. no, it was a huge PITA, but i figured if I let them take advantage of me, then they'd do it to you or someone else...A property lien was good for 21 years in florida...@ 18%. thats a good return...Usually after all was said an done, with legal, fees, collection fees, ect. are good for another 4-500 on top of the original bill...I had a good cancellation clause that allowed both parties an out. It was a fair contract. it spelled what was to be done and what charges and when money was due...only one page long with about a dozen bullet points. I'm sure a good lawyer could have taken me to task in court, but the nice thing about smalls lawyers..
