RE: RETAINERS

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
But you did eventually get paid, right? I thought late payments are very
typical in the industry. Six months is nothing! There are some clients that
don't pay  at all, and usually it is not worth the money to sue them.

Absolutely,

How about a little good faith on the part of owners!

Lawyers work on this basis all the time, so why not you. Go for it if you
can talk them into a retainer arrangement.

are there any business codes that prevent me from requiring my full design
fee paid up front prior to developing the drawings?  i have a client who is
very bad about payments - 6 months is typical.  as a result i have stopped
working with them but they came to me to design revisions to a job we did
years ago. 
thanks in advance - paul franceschi s.e.
