    The project manager is determining my income for each job instead of me!
    Hello, I started my construction cleanup business in Dec 2018. I spoke to project manager and we agreed on 24 cents a square foot. Ok, here is the problem I am having. Since I have been working in this new community, I have done rough cleans, touch up cleans, and final cleans. I have not received the 24 cents a sq ft. when asked about it after my first job, I was told it was not per job, like rough clean and so on. That the 24 cents was spaced out over the entire cleaning process. I don't know what to do. I think I am being taken advantage of. This business is only me, and no one else. I have to think about the costs it is going to have on me with taxes, supplies and so forth. For example: 4000 sq ft home final clean $275.00 he gives me for that! Please help me someone! I live in Texas

    Was there an agreement to all the terms you have stated? Was this agreement in writing? Agreeing to price is just one area you should be concerned with when negotiating terms. Your agreements need to be in writing so that both parties are protected and so that both parties are on the same page as what is expected. If you don't have that then the terms are on the fly and there will be issues, like you are experiencing now. If your agreement isn't in writing and covering a vast amount of terms, then chalk this up to a lesson learned.

    In my opinion you are being taken advantage of. Go to a different project and sign on there. This time make sure you have a written agreement that spells out the details of your services and the price you are to be paid and when.
