About Colorado Notice To Extend Time to File Mechanics Lien

When properly filed, the Notice to Extend Time to File Mechanics Lien form extends a claimant’s deadline to file a Colorado mechanics lien.

Claimants must file this notice to extend with the clerk in the Colorado county where the project is located. They must file the notice prior to the mechanics lien filing deadline.

The Colorado Notice to Extend lengthens the time in which a mechanics lien can be filed. After filing the notice, the new lien filing deadline will be 4 months after the project is completed, or 6 months after filing the extension of timewhichever occurs first.

This extension is likely not available on one or two-family residential projects.

Generally, the deadline for an unpaid contractor or supplier to file a mechanics lien in Colorado is 4 months after the date of last furnishing. Laborers who did not provide materials must file within 2 months of work completion. For a one or two-family home, the normal 4-month period in which a mechanics lien may be filed is shortened to 2 months if there is a bona fide purchaser of the dwelling.

This form meets the requirements found in the Colorado Revised Statutes.
