I was awarded a commercial contract in February of this year. I was to begin cutting in April. For no apparent reason, to my knowledge, the customer called and told me he was going to cancel my services. My contract stipulates that there is a 30 day notice before cancelation period. I would like to know if the customer is still required to pay me for the month of April. The person who had the contract for the previous 6 years is probably going to get the contract back. I bidded $5 less than he did, I went through the procedure of signing all the paperwork including papers for authorization of background checks and criminal history. To my understanding the previous lawn maintenance guy did'nt have to go through the same thing. According to the customer, this was something that was just started when I was awarded the contract. As a favor to the customer because the grass needed to be cut, I came in and cut the grass for them at the end of March because the previous lawn maintenance guy did not carry out the remainder of his contract because his services were not picked up again. Has anything like this ever happened to you? If so, what did you do or what would you do.
