I just bought a LCO about 3 months ago. I have 6 customers that have never paid me a dime. It totals almost $1000. Do I have any recourse in collecting? Can I file a lien? Do I have to sue in small claims court? By the way, I am taking the approach of others here at lawnsite, and all of our new customers are going to be on contract and paying a month in advance. So far , 7 of 7 estimates , zero signed up. I think it is because it is dormant time and they dont want to pay a higher rate per month.
