    You're subbing the work, and money but not the liability.

    make sure they have general liability insurance. In Nebraska that's all you need.

    I would ask and make sure they had business license, insurance, and workers that are legal, for maint. in oregon all you need is a state buis. license, insurance is to cover yourself and clients, not required. Do you guys have any contract forms you might rec amend. or maybe where one would start looking. thanks a bunch this all helps

    I don't have any contracts with the guys, they're all people I have known for a while and trust. I ask for proof of their general liability insurance, and if they have workers (some don't) then I ask for proof of workmans comp. It is required for our taxes so it isn't as though I don't trust them, it covers mine and their butts.

    thanks, in these days you can't cover your back side enough, these wont be places that people live in so thats a plus, and taking care of them until they sell, it may cover east half of state, gives you all a little more insight on what i am talking about,
