    I happen to have a very nice commercial account involving model houses, snowplowing, brushhogging, etc, It is a residential subdivision still being built which is an account I have had for over a year
    My question is this, I had insurance and lost it because I filed a claim within the first year, so I was told. It seems I was in a probationary period for the first year I was operating. When I went to renew my insurance, the accounts spokesperson also called to verify my insurance and that is how they found out. I found that they were not going to pay me for 1 months work because my insurance had expired. It took about two weeks to save up the 1 year premium but I was able to get insurance through another provider. Can they refuse to pay me untill I get my insurance renewed?

    The funny thing is, had they payed me as scheduled, I would have had insurance the same day I found out I was canceled, Must be murphys law here

    Does your contract state that you are to carry liability insurance? If so I'd say your fecked.

    Hi hp8125,

    If that is what they said they are going to do, I am sorry about them holding your money, but what can you do? Take them to court or Renew the insurance policy somehow?
