Question In a dilemma

Now I have a dilemma, I've just received a call from the owner (that house I had done work for the real estate) and she said she ain't paying my bill. She said the person that asked me should pay. But I've also sent my bill to that person and they also don't want to pay

Help

Does this mean I should make the "out of towners" sign an agreement ?

In the past, one of our forum members was talking about how before he did any lawn care for a renter, he contacted the owner to make sure they knew he was doing the work. He also said if he didn't get paid by the renter, the owner would pay from the deposit fund.

Is this something you could do too?

stuff like this really pisses me off! at this point I wouldnt be able to keep my cool and I probably would be waiting for these people at their door step, or better yet have someone that owes you a favor take care of it for you. see I always had a relationship with the owners or property managers to attempt to aviod this. I say just keep on being a pain in the *** keep billing both tennant and land lord eventually they will get so sick of hearing or better yet seeing you that they will pay. and yes out of towners must sign a contract! if it was me I think I would have lost it and probably gotten into some trouble by now depending on how much it was, but people think you owe them something and that you dont have bills to pay, and that you can wait untill they are ready to send you your payment for a job that they requested.
