Rules and regulations for sending a Mississippi Mechanics Lien
In Mississippi, a lien claimant has 90 days from the date of his last furnishing labor and/or materials to the project to file a lien.
After completing the Mississippi Mechanics 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.

can u file a lien if a license isn't required for work done
Yes, under Missisippi's lien laws, "no lien shall exist in faovr of any contractor or subcontractor who is not licensed as required..." Therefore, if a license isn't required by the MS State Board of Contractors to perform the work in question, than a license isn't required to be able to file a lien to secure payment.
