|In order to make sure you are filing your mechanic’s lien and notice letters timely, first you really need to know whether or not you are a 1st Tier or 2nd Tier Claimant.
1st Tier Claimant:
2nd Tier Claimant:
If you have a contract directly with the Owner, technically, under mechanic’s lien laws, you are considered an original contractor. Pursuant to the lien laws, the project can have many original contractors on a job.
Once you know what type of Claimant you are refer to the Deadline Chart, within this email, for the current timeline on the lien process which depend on the type of property the work was performed on – Commercial or Residential.
REMEMBER – IF YOU ARE A 2ND TIER CLAIMANT, YOUR NOTICE LETTERS AND AFFIDAVITS ARE DUE 1 MONTH EARLIER THAN 1st TIERED CLAIMANTS ON COMMERCIAL PROJECTS.
