    On the flip side if there is no written contract when the contractor does do a lousy job and you refuse to pay him he can't simply lien your property and screw you over. Works both ways. Perhaps the secret is to find guys who take pride in their work then the job gets done right, whether it is cash or not. The government seems to be the one pushing more trades to cash, huge red tape, trade licenses (my hair is going to look so fabulous once my hairdresser gets a licencse from the Ontario government), HST at 13% and dumb restrictions. Does it make sense that the guy who opens my pool can't start my pool heater because he does not have a gas fitters license, but being a home owner I can repair it my self if I want. By the ay why it illegal for me to pay cash. The contractor is free to claim the money if he wants to. That's my Monday morning rant.

    Mike, you are too kind to call it rant.
