"Getting Burned" Sparks Change To the Editor: In horrified response to the article "Getting Burned by a Client" by Chuck Green (6/96), I have renewed my business plan to include the following: 1.

Have an attorney review my standard contract. 5. Investigate the clients and their background. I must say that I even considered not building for clients at all, but only doing spec homes.
