On my jogs I always give a proposal with all the prices given. And things that the costermer wants beond the proposal is extra. I make sure the custermer understands that. And then I have 2 copys of the proposal that the custermer signs, one for him and one for me.
And on the bottom of the proposal it says if proposal not taken within 30 days
it is withdrawn. I know it seems like a lot of trouble to do this but it save a lot of headaces.

The billing issue could be a criminal or civil issue based on your state's laws. However, based on what I've seen here already via posts, if this were the jury I'd think you'd be out of luck. Dumping the leaves back on his driveway may wind you up in trouble with the law.

You would think that more people would learn from the mistakes of others on this site, DON'T DO ANYTHING WITHOUT A WRITTEN CONTRACT, and even to be more safe, add into your contract a clause for rain delays or other mother nature related delays. With all the frivolous lawsuits out there you cannot take a chance.hammer

Believe me I have nothing against you and I thought you provided all the facts.With the facts you provided..the fact is you chartged the guy without approval on the price and you charged him $360 last year and $550.00 this year..like I say that is what I interpreted by the facts you provided here.Sorry if you took it personaly I have nothing against you at all.

didn't read all the posts, so i don't know if someone has said this....

if he wrote on the check " paid in full" or something of that manner, they if you cash it you accept those terms... you're SOL.

BUT if nothing was written on the bill, they he is legally bound to pay you the remainder...
I have been on the customer side of this and was informed by the judge that by me giving the guy ANY payment, i acknowledged that he did the work, and i legally agreed to pay the amount...
so file small claims on the guy.

How many people did you split that $60.00/hr with?

That's not always true.

it is in nc
if someone writes terms on a check, and you cash or deposit it, then you are accepting thier terms.
had a client once try to pull this for a retaining wall..
job price was $3100.00. they were the pita from hell..
they finally wrote me a check for $2100.00 and wrote on the note portion of the check paid in full....
i called our attourney and asked it i deposited it would i still have any legal rights to pursue the remaining money.. he told me no..
