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

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 lien in Colorado, there are two general requirements.

First, contractors are required to 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.

Second, a 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.

Colorado is one of the few states that has a specific Statement of Mechanics Lien form for General Contractors and another Mechanics Lien 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.
