I met this lady who works for SBC yellowpages and she and her husband were as nice as could be. I gave her my bid and they both agreed to have me mow every week. So I scalped her yard mid March. She calls me a week later wanting to know where to send the check and tells me she found someone else to mow as well as fertilize and spray all in one. So I assumed she intended to pay me. It has now been three weeks and I have left messages 3 times. I assume I will need to go to small claims court for this. Can I put a lien on her property, and if so what info do I need from her for this? This was a verbal contract. I have never once not been paid before. This is new for me. Any help would be appreciated.
