DirtPail DirtTip - Lien Waiver Is Your Insurance

Times are tough, and there are more do-it-yourselfers out there trying to save a buck or two wherever and whenever they can.  Hiring a qualified contractor to put those final finishing touches is often needed to close a project up.  

Being loyal to your wallet with this decision is understandable, but also understand that sometimes reputable businesses have problems with money, especially when the industry has been on hard times for an extended period.  Materials like aggregate and stone need to be paid for up front by the contractor, as well other related costs, and generally do not get paid for until completion. 

To protect yourself, upon remitting payment in full, request a Lien Waiver from your hired help.  This will help to insure that no potential backlash due to non payment on your contractors part can affect you.   Don't feel awkward about making this reasonable request.  Remember, this is your assurance that will help avoid any future financial liability, and also provide you with piece of mind. 

If that doesn't sway your decision to do so, consider this... 

You-Know-What will hit the fan if You-Know-Who is NOT HAPPY that you didn't take due diligence...  Right Honey?...
