    We received a contract last week that has in it "that they do not have to pay us if they do not get payed from the owner" :mad:

    We have several lots and condos and not one has ask us to sign a contract with that in there... It is a small lot and a long sidewalk( not that much money) I do not want to sign something like this. I sent it back and ask to revise the contract.. Just waiting to see what happens now...

    Has anyone had to sign something like this????:confused:

    If it's USM, you're also not allowed to pursue payment from the owners. In short, you're just SOL.

    I'd have laughed at them. Who's to say they get paid and say they don't?!!?!?!? Even if so, you provide the service and deserve payment. I'd spit on their BS contract.
