I planted nine large shrubs for labor and materials costs of $3825.00. The owner is refusing to pay my invoice. He is saying the trees are diseased, the nursery says this is common and they and will grow out of the problem in Spring. The owner could have rejected the plants when they arrived as he was involved in their installation but he didnt and now that they are planted, they cannot be returned.
Apparently the owner is not going to pay voluntarily and since returning is not an option, I would suggest letting a certified commercial collection agency licensed and bonded to collect in CA attempt to persuade owner to pay. This could be done without any upfront cost to you and the agency only receives a small percentage of what they collect for you. Feel free to call or email email@example.com Best regards, Steve
