    Over here, once something is attached to a permanent structure it becomes a fixture of said structure, i.e. it becomes part of the building AND CAN NOT BE REMOVED. Apart from trespassing, the owner (if leased, tenant) of the building can have you prosecuted for malicious damage to property. If your invoice/quote stated that you remain the owner until paid, it means you remain the owner of the sign if not installed permanently, or, if installed, the owner of the debt outstanding NOT THE SIGN. Our legal system is based on that of the UK, so it will most likely be the same for you.
