Valid Pa contract for 15% is in place. The insured does not want to pay us. We took them from 0 to 70K now you know the routine, the 3-party checks are in and they want to negotiate the contract.
Your question states that you signed a Public Adjuster contract with property owners who have since been paid by their insurer but wish to negotiate with you rather than paying the agreed-upon 15%.
First, your claim is covered by 512.52 of the Illinois Insurance Code (215 ILCS 5/512.52).
Second, Illinois courts have consistently held that the use of the word “lien” in the statute means the legislature intended to give adjusters an enforceable lien.
Note, your claim would not give right to a "Mechanics" lien but, rather, a valid lien under the auspices of the Illinois Insurance Code.
I hope that this information was help. Best of luck!
Would levelset provide that service for me?
