Our customer is acting as their own general contractor on the job to try and save money. On our final invoice for our scope, she shorted us 70% of the final invoice value ($39k). She wrote on the check that "By cashing check, contractor accepts this as payment in full". She provided her list of reasons for shorting the amount, but they are completely unwarranted/previously addressed, and the only legitimate item called out was incredibly vague detail on the plans (insulation for slab on grade above and beyond normal building code) and she failed to provide any answers when consulted at the time, leaving it up to interpretation by us. She also failed to mention she was going to withhold payment for it at that time, and allowed the complete interior of the building to be completed preventing us from even fixing the item even if we were willing to. If we cash the check are we agreeing to it being payment in full even though we do not agree and wish to process it as a partial payment of the balance due?
Nowadays, it's common practice for students to purchase their own work. Now, nobody will be shocked by this. However, this does not imply that we should delegate the completion of any and all jobs. I think we occasionally need their assistance, but not constantly. Finding a high-quality service is made much simpler thanks to reviews of reliable writing businesses. I believe it will be helpful to those people who require assistance with their writing tasks.
