Default Collection issue- Looking for input

I have a client who has not paid for their inspection and i'm looking for a little input on any best practices. I have delivered the report and I know their closing isnt until July. I have left a v mail and sent two reminders from my invoice tool requesting payment. I just reached out to the realtor who said she would check to see what's going on.

Any suggestions? Do I have any leverage?

Never send the report unless you receive payment first

Well! They may have degrees, but that is not an indicator of common sense or right thinking...M. Larson circa 9-27-2018.
