    Made some changes. I need this finalized very soon so I can get it to my current customers.
    Let me know what you think, and what you think about the dec 1st- feb 28th service. I dont want this agreement to be binding in ANY way and I think the winter service might scare people off.

    State the late penalty terms specifically if you want to have any chance of enforcing them.

    I did have a late fee penalty charge but someone on here said it was illigal to charge that much. Now Im trying to find out the legal charge but cant find anything about it, ANYWHERE!

    Call a collection agency and have them collections for you. They will give you all the needed wording info and legal amounts you can charge.

    Limitations on late fee charges are a matter of state law and will vary depending on your state.

    Do you think it would be a good idea to add something in the event of a drought that the customer should call you the day before their scheduled service if they need to skip that week?
