ok, we've discussed action on a dead beat customer. alot of guys say take them to small claims court. ok, fine, if u do, you get a judgement, they don't pay, you put a lien on thier house. great, in 30 yrs, if u r still alive, and they sell, you get your dough plus interest. now, what if you damaged the clients property, and refused to pay? could THEY TAKE YOU to small claims? if they win, and they get a judgement, and you refuse to pay, can they put a lien on YOUR house? how would it work if u damaged thier property, and refused to pay?
