The owner pays as he feels.

The presumed written contract for services and material provided should state when payment is required to be made from the client. As such, read your agreement presumably signed by your client in that most likely the answer to your question will be there. If not, custom and practice in the assisted living facility industry is that payment should be made within 30 days of invoicing in full.

I would insist on payment in full of each written invoice within 30 days of mailing.
