    What bad luck I have encountered. While trying to finish one job contract here before I move I have had bad weather for weeks. Its been nice for a few days now and Im almost done. The phone rang at 4:15 with a familar voice on the other end,my customers neighbor telling me that my client was dead. I was there at 10 am delivering the last materials I needed and never dreamed this was possible.It appears the mans son killed him I so now I have wasted a month for nothing since there is nobody to pay me now. This is a tragic situation for all I reckon but at least I will be there in a few days regardless.Just disgusted and out 7,000.

    Sorry to hear that, Richie - and I hope that your luck turns soon! Can you file a lien against his house or his estate? I'm sure there must be some way to try to recoup your money.

    Not sure how it works in WV, but here in Indian you simply slap a lean on the property and wait.

    That is a bad situation for all. Like others said just place a lein on the estate, it may be 6-8 months before you get your money back but the lein will have to be settled before probate will release the estate. good luck with it.
