First of all I do not work for RESE...now that that's out of the way
If your second statement is true....then why did you go? Why was the error not brought to title/SD/SS attention BEFORE you went?
"Under their policy, had I showed up for the appointment and the client refused to sign I would still only get a trip and doc fee. NOT ONE SS I WORKED FOR EVER PAYS A FEE LOWER THAN THE CONTRACTED PRICE."
Half fee or trip & Print fee for no signs has been standard procedure for the 13+ years I was in this business - why would you get your full fee when you didn't do your full job???
