It's been over 2 months since I've been paid by a homeowners association. I give them a 25 day window to return the payment and just finally, I get the money. I had called and called and sent them a nice, professional letter stating that I must impose a 30 notice before I seek legal action. The treasurer calls me up and explains that he has no time to run to the P.O. Box since the post office closes at 5 pm. NOT MY PROBLEM! He told me 3 weeks ago he wrote out the check, and he did. He didn't mail it for 3 weeks putting them over 2 months behind. That becomes my problem. Anyways, he tells me the situation and says he doesn't apprieciate being threatend. I said, your all caught up now and we need to make better payment arrangements and keep better communication. He mentioned it's not like it's 6 months late, so I explained to him that this is not a forclosure process. Pay your bill and we won't have any hang ups as far as stopping and starting work. If you slip on a credit card bill, that goes on your report as 30, 60, or 90 days late. You should be so lucky I'm not seeking collections on your account. I provide a service and I expect to be paid in a timely manner. Would you like me to service your account for 6 months without a billing? I don't think so. We now have alternative payment methods that should work fine and there is now an additional officer that can write checks out for the association. I do believe it to be a glitch, however, I HATE waiting on other people and dealing with their problems. But sometimes it takes an a-hole to straighten out one. I have the contract again next year none-the-less and they like my work. I guess someone forgot to tell me that I don't get paid in this business. It's all for the senery.
