Update - Lawsuit

October 14th, 2021 at 01:36 am

Well I don’t know where to begin. I’ll keep it short. 


I was so excited for my new contract, and ended up hiring legal to obtain my outstanding payment. 


Long story short, company signed a contract for services (their contract not mine), both parties agreed, the company wanted me in the office, basically full time, as a contractor. This was not apart of my contract/agreement. I actually warned them about hiring contractors to work as an employee. The company was to provide me 30-day notice, I’m okay if they didn’t but pay me for my one month of service at least. They chose not to pay me for the month, now I’m asking for the 10k that’s owed to me, at the advise of my attorney. 


I hate suing people. I probably wouldn’t if I didn’t need the money but right is right and wrong is wrong. Honestly if they’d paid me the $5k even though the contract called for an additional 30- days, I would have been happy. 


Next I’m dealing with a roof debacle, HOA is trying force new roofs that technically they’re required to pay. I can’t get a roofer out her to give me a quote. Found one and he wants close to $9k that I do not want to take out if my savings. I ended up hiring an inspector who stated based on his expertise the roof is not over 20 years old so now I’m fighting with the HOA. 


I received payment from another client, $8600. I took this money, paid my mortgage, HOA and COBRA through December, next payment isn’t until January. 

I charged a few things on my CC, mostly for the business (e.g. insurances, software) so $3k will pay off the card. 

All in all, I haven’t touched any of my savings. 


Some days I just want to cry but I’m still pushing.

    I'm really sorry you are dealing with all of this Amber. When my condo complex replaced the roofs it was all covered from money in the reserve funds for maintenance, there was no special assessment or costs that owners had to pay.

    Thanks everyone

    Why does the HOA think that the roof is your responsibility if it has already been agreed that the HOA pays for it?

    I hope your various challenges improve soon. I think you are right to pursue the payment you're entitled to. I know it's unpleasant, but hopefully your attorney will take care of most of it.

    Thanks everyone I’m praying things work out. As far as our HOA, I think it’s shady. We would like to hire outside counsel but not all are willing to chip in. It sucks
