Hello
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Is the $59 in addition to the #36 already paid?

I can provide an overview of the mechanic lien requirements in Illinois. If your situation does not fit the requirements for a mechanic's lien you would also have the option of filing a breach of contract case. What does your contract with the property owner state your remedies are in the event the owner breaches the contract?

$59.00 may be for a phone call. Feel free to ignore the phone call request. The site generates this request. I am happy to continue in this format.

Your question: What does your contract with the property owner state your remedies are in the event the owner breaches the contract?We do the work and give our client the bill with net 20.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Our company has been in business for 19 years. There's never been actual contracts that go from one hand to the other. We do the work and they pay the bill. I'm confused by the contract question.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I guess there's no legal contract.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Are you there?

Yes.
