I am currently trying to collect on an outstanding invoice of one of my clients. He owes my $216.00 for 8 mowings. He hasn't paid yet and I've been calling him about 2 times a month for the past 6 months. Can I place a lien on his property so that when he sells his home, then I will get paid? has anyone done this? and no I did not have him sign a contract... that would've been nice. however hindsight is 20/20.
