Get help filing your Alabama Mechanics Lien
In Alabama, a mechanics lien is called a Statement of Lien and it may be filed by any party who has not been paid for construction work on a project. This document is used to help contractors, suppliers, and others that work in the construction industry to get paid the money they’ve earned on their projects in Alabama.
There are two types of Alabama Mechanics Liens: the “Unpaid Balance Lien” and the “Full Price Lien.” This form may be used to file both types of liens.
An Unpaid Balance Lien is available to parties without a contract with the owner and is only effective to money in the hands of the owner at the time the Notice of Unpaid Lien is delivered to them.
A Full Price Lien is a lien in favor of general contractors or others in direct contact with the owner, or materialmen who gives a Notice to Owner prior to furnishing materials to the project.
Pro tip: Anyone who did not contract with the owner must deliver a Notice of Unpaid Lien to the property owner before filing a lien.

Rules and regulations for sending a Alabama Mechanics Lien
In Alabama, those who contract directly with the owner have 6 months from when the debt became due to file a Statement of Mechanics Lien. This 6 month period is expiring, and it is time to file a lien.
After completing the Alabama Claim of Lien Form, you must deliver it to the appropriate parties required by statute. Notices are typically served on the property owner and, for sub-tier parties, the general contractor. However, depending on the type of notice, it can be helpful to send notices to anyone else who is in charge of your payment, like a lender or surety company on the project.
