Notice of Intent to Lien
Overview of Notice of Intent to Lien
In certain states, a special “notice of intent to lien” is required before filing the actual lien. Our office prepares and serves these notices for the following situations:
- CA Design Professional Liens:
According to California Civil Code Section 8304(c), before filing a design professionals’ lien, the design professional must give the landowner a notice demanding payment and declaring that a default has occurred under the contract and the amount of the default. This notice must be sent 10 days before filing the actual lien.
- NV Residential Projects:
According to N.R.S. Section 108.226(6), if a work of improvement involves the construction, alteration or repair of a multifamily or single-family residence, including, but not limited to apartment houses, a “15-day Notice of Intent to Lien” must be served on both the property owner and the reputed general contractor before filing a lien. Only commercial construction projects are exempt from serving the 15-day Notice of Intent to Lien. A properly served 15-Day Notice of Intent to Lien gives an additional 15 day credit towards the construction lien filing deadline.
