I have a client that owes me money. I contacted him today for payment and he agreed to pay me half (that's roughly the anmount that is "past due" and I agreed to start mowing again. Well I get there and the check is for 1/4 instead a half. So I take the check to his bank and cash it, and I don't mow. I'm sure I'll get a call when he gets home tonight. Anyway, his house is on the market and has just been sold, but won't close for a few weeks I'm sure. About half of what he owes me is for landscaping, mostly bed prep, trimming and lots of mulch. Do I take a lien on his property before he sells or give him another chance? What would you all do???
