It is crucial that your Arizona mechanics lien contains all the information required by statute. The failure to include the proper information can be as fatal to a lien claim as not getting it filed on time, or not sending it to the proper parties. The failure to include the required information, including a copy and proof of mailing of the 20-day preliminary notice, can result in an invalid lien.

Arizona mechanics liens are required to be made under oath by the claimant (or some other party with knowledge of the facts), so if you are preparing your lien document yourself remember that once it is complete, you must wait to sign until your signature on the document can be notarized. An Arizona mechanics lien must contain the following information:

1. The legal description of the lands and improvements to be charged with a lien.
2. The name of the owner or reputed owner of the property concerned, if known, and the name of the person by whom the lienor was employed or to whom he furnished materials.
3. A statement of the terms, time given and conditions of the contract, if it is oral, or a copy of the contract, if it is written.
4. A statement of the lienor’s demand, after deducting just credits and offsets.
5. A statement of the date of completion of the building, structure or improvement, or any alteration or repair of such building, structure or improvement. 6. A statement of the date the preliminary twenty day notice required by § 33-992.01 was given. A copy of such preliminary twenty day notice and the proof of mailing required by § 33-992.02 shall be attached.

Pro tip: In the state of Arizona, if the project was the construction or improvement of an owner-occupied residential structure, only partes contracting directly with the property owner are allowed to file mechanics liens. This is important to consider prior to attempting to file a mechanics lien. Since owner-occupied residential construction projects are, generally speaking, smaller scale projects than commercial or even multi-family residential projects, the use of subcontractors occurs less often. But it’s not unheard of to have subcontractors involved on an owner-occupied residential project in Arizona, and these subs must be careful since they will not have lien rights on an owner occupied residential project.
