Hi there......I asked a question about potential application of interest on a client's late fees in CA just recently and was advised no go unless in the written contract because the client was in CA. However, I thought you answered an earlier question of mine which should be considered and back on 9/16/2013 (above). This answer compared to yesterday’s now totally confuses me. It does appears that while I am the last signer and in Idaho, where the contract was made, and the work done is also done from Idaho that Idaho law prevails unless I am totally misunderstanding the answer from 9/16. Based on the earlier answer it appears that I may well be able to invoice interest under ID Stat. 28-22-104. There is no other contractual interest stated in the contract, nor is interest mentioned at all and the money due upon receipt is clearly stated in my agreement. How do I submit another inquiry to you directly to answer so not to lose continuity regarding how this may or may not change your answer from yesterday? TY
Just did, did you get it?
