About Colorado Statement of Mechanics Lien Form (for GCs) Form

A mechanics lien is a very effective tool to help contractors get paid for their work. This Colorado Statement of Mechanics Lien Form is for General Contractors (Prime Contractors) who have not been paid for services, labor, materials, equipment, or other construction services performed on a job.

If you’re looking to file a Colorado mechanics lien, there are two general requirements:

  1. Contractors must file a Notice of Intent to Lien 10 days before filing the lien. An affidavit proving the Notice of Intent to lien was sent to the property owner must also be included when filing a lien with the County Recorder. Not sending a Notice of Intent Lien may mean an invalid lien.
  2. The mechanics lien must be filed within 120 days of last delivering labor or materials. If only labor was performed on the job (and not materials) a general contractor has 2 months to file a mechanics lien in Colorado.

This form meets the requirements set forth in at Colorado Revised Statutes, §38-22-101 through §38-22-133 as enacted by the Colorado legislature.

Not a General Contractor? Use a different mechanics lien form

Colorado is one of the few states that has a specific Statement of Mechanics Lien form for General Contractors and another form for subcontractors. Not using the correct mechanics lien form may mean a rejected lien from the County Recorder or an invalid lien if challenged in court.

If you’re a subcontractor and looking for a mechanics lien form you can use in Colorado, you need to use a different lien form.
