Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will try to help you. Please remember I just report or interpret the law, so the outcome may not be what you hoped for.
Did your contract with the landlord say how much time the landlord had to pay your bill? Are you a tenant of the landlord and did this work relate in any way to the tenancy?
Since there is no written contract, you have to have a demand for the payment. Under your agreement once the time came for payment, you needed to make a demand. There is no law that says you have to give 10 days. Its just that in proving your claim in court by making the demand there is a clear timeline when payment is due. If the payment is made you do not need to go to court, if not there is no doubt that the demand for payment was made and all you have to prove is that you did the work. It was more practical advice than legal.
